We already have how many inches??? of snow, and yet it is supposed to snow again, lots, tomorrow. People are dealing with it in various ways, from precancelling events, to making elaborate travel contingency plans. Today Eli got a ride to Madison with Chris so he could play a show at Nottingham, then will stay there overnight and make his way to work in the promised ice/snow in the a.m. Meanwhile, Papa is hoping to make it to work in the Subaru (better in snow than on ice, which should be coming first) and then home again with Eli. We’ll let you know how that goes.
Today, however, I enjoyed the incredible high of 25 degrees. And it was sunny! Amazing! But what are we going to do with more snow?
The snow piles, already higher than the deck.
Papa’s shoveled path for the wheelbarrow; tracks leading off to the right go to the compost pile. The snow is over our boots. I think I should get some snowshoes.
The road is passable today – tomorrow it’ll be our arch-nemesis.
OK, enough about the snow; how about some food?
This evening I made pesto from Vegan With a Vengeance, using frozen basil from the summer. It was great, and very garlicky. No pics, but good and green. The other night, I made mashed vegetables with a recipe from Vegan Dad, and topped it with roasted tempeh and vegetables.
We ate it all up.
