"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."

Return of Snow

Did we really need a dose of snow on top of everything else going on in our state? Well, we got it. We hope it won't hamper the power company crews...those here in NH and the ones from MD, MI, and Canada coming to help us out. Latest word is that it will be "multiple days" before power is restored and we assume that means us specifically as well as the state in general, and the other 273,000, some of whom are taking refuge in shelters or with family or friends.

For much of yesterday we did have a working landline, but no longer. So now we have cell phones only, and since we have generator-generated electricity we can keep them charged.

Ruth and Jewel assess the morning accumulation. We got about 4 or 5 inches...it's still falling.

And it's sticking. In interesting ways.

It's lovely to look at, too.

The Chap and I had a diocesan stewardship institute today in Concord. Our local roads were a little icy and snowy...

...but the main roads were just wet.

The Capitol Dome, which also appears in the writing project I just completed.

In the city the snow had stopped by the time we finished our meeting, shortly after lunchtime. It was great morning. And we prayed for the people of Chile...and a young lady from NH who is there and whose family are anxiously awaiting contact from her.
