Sorry about service interruption. I've been slacking anyway. Too much to do. Take a nap. Read NY Times. Finish Carl Hiaasen. Hit the gym. Make some shrimp Creole.
Open line for you.
WEATHER NOTE: Ice craziness may be coming. Not until Tuesday night in LR, Weather Service says at the moment. I'm happy to say I have some chili grind meat, Velveeta, Ro-Tel, hot chocolate mix and other necessities on hand. And enough firewood for at least a day or two without power, but it's so well-seasoned it burns like pine needles.
