The boys also shoveled me a path to get to the other side of the drive, but I needed to shovel out getting into the coop. There was snow in the coop and a huge drift in the run. Lovely.
We got 12 inches of snow by Tuesday morning. We have 17 inches on the ground. A nephew came and plowed us out, but more snow is coming. Sigh.
They predicted -8°F last night. I filled water jugs. Woke up to a wind-chill of -11°F. I made sure there was plenty of food for leftovers for today too.
Daughter K made it to work yesterday, as the downgraded us before she had to be to work (level 3 is a level the Sheriff can give you a ticket for being on the road). She got to work, but said all the stores in the strip she works in were closed. She just wanted to go home, as the roads are still not good and no one was shopping (as should be).
Youngest was told she should not go to work, and if the salon opened, they'd just have two people there. They ended up staying closed. My husband who got his truck stuck yesterday, got it out with the nephews and he made it to work (although drove during a level 3).
I got busy in the kitchen, by first making a breakfast bake - zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, onion, green pepper, jalapeno, garlic, dandelion greens, bacon and chives.
Next up was a strawberry crisp, using strawberries I froze.
Made some more homemade seasoned salt.
Made a double batch of my version of "chex mix" for the girls. I normally only make this for the holidays.
Dinner? A new recipe - pizza casserole (posting recipe soon) using Einkorn penne. Our side dish? Zucchini and corn saute. However, I didn't get the side veggie made. I will get it made today though.
The craft supply purge continues. It's gonna get me into more trouble. I found these and they are USA made. I may be making something. Or not. We'll see if the craft bug stays or goes.
