Sample Saturday - postponed

Last Thursday night the Pacific Northwest had a big windstorm . Rain, sleet, seventy mile an hour winds. Like more than a million of our neighbors we've been without power. Again like most of our neighbors, we are ill-prepared for life without electricity. No heat, no lights, no internet. No computer. Horrors! And no reading, except during the brief daylight hours when firewood must be laid in and all chores done.

No wonder millions of pioneer women didn't writer novels. I'm amazed any of them found time to write a journal.

Evanne, glad to know you're okay. Being a "homey", I'd been reading about the storms. They sounded pretty bad. I haven't talked to my parents but they're down in Portland which it appears missed the brunt.

I'm sorry you had to deal with the power outage, but hope you and everyone you know came out relatively unscathed (short the period of time you spend back in the 18th century ;-) ).
