Survival







Well, we survived the catastrophe. Despite the near 24 hour media coverage, Ice Storm 2007 didn't make a very big impression here. I hear it's worse in the east. Everything's lovely and white, and the roads are slick, but we still have our power and very little icing on anything but the roads.


We have no church today, so it'll be another play at home day. The kids and I are having fun spending time with Daddy. Yesterday we made forts, played with Play-Doh, read books, and, of course, played video games. Daddy's an engineer, so forts around here are fairly complex. You can't tell from the pictures, but this fort had lofts, windows and an antechamber. Fun, fun, fun! Today will most likely be more of the same. Both kids are mildly sick, so we won't be going out into the snow. Zaya still has a bit of fever off and on. (More off than on, now.) And Mim started barking like a small baby seal yesterday evening. (There's no harsh breathing or fever, though, so I don't think it's croup.)
