"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."
Hilary Mantel

Massive Snowfall

About a foot, total. Very heavy, very clingy. Even the strong winds overnight didn't dislodge it.

Ruth says, "Wow!"

Bird feeder on the deck.

Trees behind the house.

One of our drives.

Around 10 p.m. last night we lost power. I listened to the rest of the Oscar broadcast on the tv radio. Cousin Kate won her statuette (finally!) The power was restored around midnight. Internet service is still out, our dish is crusted with snow and isn't receiving outer space frequencies.

I'm out and about today in this amazingly white world. (Blogging from the library.) Cookbook meeting, music lesson. Then back to the manuscript...my one and only activity this week, apart from a hairdresser's appointment.

We must be in record snowfall territory. A month ago we were inches away from setting a new one. Since then we've had feet of the stuff.
