Snowed In

“Oh the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful.

And since we’ve no place to go,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

When I went outside yesterday to get some groceries into the house, that was the operative word. I love snowstorms, but the one thing I enjoy more is the opportunity for a snow day. There’s the lack of the Day Job, the potential Internet outage – had one in the area already – and the fact that one can just simply relax does count for a lot.

Considering that I do not have the space to take down the A/C, I end up with a permanent, perpetual draft in my room. I sealed the cracks the best that I could with duct tape, and put a towel over the top, but it’s still utterly freezing. The surprise of the electric blanket was…well, definitely a surprise. Michelle – I have to thank you again, especially after roasting under it all through the night. I don’t know how the hell I could’ve done without this before. Thus, they’re my Recommendation Du Jour for cold, snowy, wintry days.

A great one to purchase, very similar to the one I have, is at Amazon.

Seriously, kids, if you’re in any place in the world that gets even a lick of snow, this is an essential.

My plan for the next few hours is to brainstorm, and possibly edit, and possibly continue in getting back in touch/reacquainting with Books 3 and 4. So busy was I in recent time that I need this reconnection. That and the character of Corwin Jacobs (Book 5) is still undefined. So the story needs to continue to evolve. And, with a lovely pomegranate as my snack du jour, I am more than happy to delve right back into that universe of adventure.

So, until next time…
