Saturday: snowed in
Slept in a bit, but still up before 6:30 this morning, it's all relative. Knowing of the strong possibility of power outages, I was sure to get the laundry done early. Fire going since I got up, I got 3 HE XL loads done, machine drying one load of towels, the rest is hanging on various racks I have. Watching my pennies, hoping to reduce the electric bill to below $100.
Breakfast was a fridge cleanout: a potato/onion/pepper/bacon/combo Munster and Cheddar cheese quiche. Only one piece remains, so I am guessing that this went over well.
DS texted me early this morning, asking if he and the GF could crash here after work this afternoon. While we are a 10 minute car ride away, based on the heavy snow coming down, the lack of any plows coming down the local streets, I am anticipating that he will decide to stay, not arriving until sometime before 3 (off @ 2). I had planned on clam chowder for just DD and I, now there are 4, possibly 6 for supper. I can stretch what I have with 2 cans cr corn, milk, black pepper, butter, onion, l/o scallopped potatoes that I can dice up. Saltines on the side.
