"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

From the Eye of the Storm

My title probably isn't at all accurate, isn't it calm within the storm's eye? Here, I'm surrounded by a mighty rage.

Yesterday we had morning rain and afternoon snow. The Chap took this photo of our pair of cardinals, who seldom strayed from the feeder.

As usual the girls had a blast, racing round their yard and play-fighting.

"Let's chase Lola!

About 4 inches of snow piled up before the rain and the powerful wind arrived, after dark. Nearly all the white stuff has washed away. Amazingly, no power outages here at the Lodge...yet. A few flickers this morning. A lot of scary gusts. Reportedly the gusts could be 50 or 60 mph.

The Chap arrived at his place of work right after an outage occurred all over the city. So they've sent him back home again. He should arrive at any moment.

I suppose I'll watch the Boston Marathon on telly, unless it's too unbearable seeing all those poor souls trudging through what looks and feels like a hurricane!

Hope you other bloggers in our Northeast region are all right thi morning--warm and safe and dry. And anybody else who was in this storm's long path.
