While we’re waiting for Snowpocalypse — 20 total inches now predicted, and! 11 more on Friday, from Another, Completely Unrelated storm — While, I say, we’re waiting for the snow to fall, I should perhaps point you to Eating Authors, a series of blog posts hosted by Lawrence Schoen, in which diverse writers talk about their best meal ever. Today’s guest is. . .
. . .why, it’s me.
While I’m doing the promotion thing, please allow me to ask you, if you’ve read. . .any of the Carousel books, really, but most notably Carousel Seas, please consider leaving a reader review on BN, Amazon, Goodreads, your blog, or wherever you talk about books with your friends. Thank you.
Today, as we wait for Snowpocalypse (see above), it’s bright and sunny – and very, very cold. The warmest the car’s on-board thermometer would own to, on my drive into town, was 12F/-11C, with a stiff wind bringing that right down to 0F/-18C. The Shaws on KMD was. . .not particularly busy when I stopped to pick up bottled water, but the KMD Hannaford, where I stopped to pick up items not available at Shaws, Was. A. Freaking. Zoo. Whole shelves were empty. There wasn’t a banana in the store, unless it was already in somebody’s basket, the wine section had been stripped, and the bread section; there were no muffins in the bakery section.
. . .this is going to be a Strange Snowstorm, isn’t it?
While I was in town, Steve, who was catching up the laundry at home, was treated to a pre-blizzard power outage. Hoping that wasn’t Central Maine Power, helpfully giving us a practice run.
For the rest of the day, there is laundry, and making sure the dishes are caught up, and, yanno — writing.
And! A question for East Coast peeps: Has it started snowing where you are, yet?
