Too tired to cook, so I ordered out. Stomach is much better, whatever had hold of me is finally gone.

I got up a half hour or so. Husband groggily said, water. Huh? started to hand him the water bottle I keep at my bedside. I was pretty sure he had one on his side as well. "No, run water" After 30+ years together, I got it. Our downstairs bathroom gets very cold, and although we didn't turn down the thermostat last night, the pipes do freeze easily. So running some water (I usually do it by tossing in a load of washing) during the coldest hours of the day (now) keeps everything copacetic.

That sounds good... I can almost smell them! Are you going to have sausage gravy with them or just butter?

It is now 4:30 and my dog just came down for a hug. Weird. She almost always comes down with me in my insomnia moments, goes out to do her business, I give her a milk bone, and she goes back to bed with husband, who usually wakes around 8. I got up around 3:30, we did our routine, she went back to bed .... but just came down to hug me and went back to bed. What a dog.

He then called 911 and thank goodness their were there in a matter of minutes. He then got a call from his wife and she was sitting in traffic for over an hour and a half because of another crash on the bypass. I am so grateful that they were alright, but my heart goes out to the other victims. I sure wish that everyone would slow down and not follow so close.
I'm glad your family is okay. Mark went out yesterday to try to find firewood and was stuck in traffic. He saw a few accidents. My thoughts are with those people that had trouble.

Yeah, there were a lot of accidents around here yesterday, with all the snow. We'd made a point of getting out when we heard the prediction. It wasn't panic buying like some do; I keep a pretty full pantry. But I wanted to by stamps (for U.S. members, you know why), get what fresh food we need, and get my dress coat out of the cleaners. Yesterday was all about the snow.
