About five there was a brown out, when the answering machine woke me up with its self check noises, and I told myself to get up and make coffee while it was easy, but I didn't. I got up at my regular time and fixed breakfast after resetting the microwave clock, and all is well.
After it got light I could see that the trees are all bent over farther than they were at dusk yesterday. I've got enough wood in the house for at least one day, but now I'm worried about how I'm going to skate out there and bring more in. With ice on the walk, and ice coating the wood, the answer is One. Piece. at. a. Time. Sloooowly.
