I live in New England, therefore I like my coffee iced. Even when it is zero degrees out. This means I make a pot of hot coffee, then put it in Mason jars to drink the next morning.
Today I woke up to NO COFFEE IN THE FRIDGE!!! This means I either have to chill down the hot coffee or drink it hot, aarrggghhhh!
I am generalizing, as I know not everyone here in New England drinks their coffee cold; I'm sure some would scoff at my temperature preference.
This is obviously a matter of life or death at this moment.
It's early, I didnt get enough sleep, it's cold and I need some caffeine. Immediately.
ON to better things...
We had a blizzard here, Juno. People were freaking out. It was Armageddon. No bread, milk or eggs was to be found in any store anywhere!
I wasn't too concerned, except for the fact we may lose power which is bad. Our water pump from the well and our heat are both electric based. So I filled up some water bottles, bought some candles and hope we wouldnt need to huddle around the propane fireplace in the pool table room, especially since there are no couches in there or anything comfortable to sit on.
We didnt lose power but there is a lot of snow - I'm guessing about 28-30" here. Worcester received 34.5" a new all time record, but they are at a higher altitude even though it's only 15 miles away.
It's so hard to see in the pic below but thats my back porch, looking out to the shed. The big lump to the left is our grill and Ethan drew his "E" in the side of it after he shoveled a path out to the bird feeder and compost. The grill with the snow on it is taller than I am - so about 5'7".
While everyone seemed to have 2 days off due to the snow, I had to work, same as always - lucky me!! I do love my job!
I have been working on 4 orders right now, 2 are wholesale and they have some similar items so I've been making those at the same time. I think I am a little more than half done at this point.
Ahhh, coffee in hand - now I can start my day!!
