delicious hearty breakfast of hot cocoa and scrambled eggs
with bacon and sausage dice that Chef Dad managed to grill in the garage.
We even had hot coffee! I had an old teakettle. Actually it was cheap and new, but the whistler broke almost as soon as I started to use it, causing a serious fire hazard, since Sweetie WILL keep putting the kettle on for tea and then forget about it if it doesn't whistle. SOOOO, I ordered a new Revereware kettle. This was very serendipitious timing, for I now had an OLD kettle to use on the bar-b-que...see how things work out for the best?? So between the old kettle and the French press coffee maker, we were able to make coffee and even share a cup with our new neighbor, who was also cooking on his bar-b-que in his garage.
We have now completely thrown in the towel and headed back to Virginia. "THEY" are calling for another 8-10" here and up to another 20" in the D.C. area and another 8" in Delaware tomorrow. So it's a very good thing that we don't need to go back until next Sunday or Monday (probably Sunday, as there is more snow in the forecast for Monday). It has been a winter to remember..or maybe to forget, as quickly as possible!
