The Last Blast of February!!
Last night we arrived home,
started supper prep before going to the gym
and braced for the coming storm.
The wind whipped up just like predicted
and the hydro flickered and promptly went out!!
We called ahead to the gym to see if they had
hydro and they did - so, we carried on
with our plans, hoping all would be well
by the time we returned home.
Alas, it was pitch dark in the neighbourhood
and we knew that we were in for a dark
and very stormy night!
A candlelight supper of left-overs, warmed on the
woodstove tasted not too bad.
The planned menu of Salmon and fresh veggies
would have to wait for tomorrow's meal.
The wind howled bending the tall evergreen trees
that surround our farm house.
We were so thankful to have a warm cozy
fire to sit by as we attempted to solve
the latest crossword puzzle, using the only
flashlight that had a good battery.
What IS the 6 letter word for
Saddle Horn starting with the letters PO???
5 hours later,
we were back on the grid,
just in time for the
11:00 o'clock News.
By morning - our lane was
cleared and off to work we went.
Looks like March is coming in like a Lion!!
I hope so......that means it will
go out like a Lamb - right!?
BTW - the word is "Pommel"...............who knew!
