We didn’t have anyone over for Thanksgiving because there was this blizzard. This entire month aside from maybe three days, has been well below freezing and it feels like January. We had a lot of snow and it didn’t stop until Friday morning. This wasn’t a light, fluffy snow. It was as dense as cement and very hard to snowplow. I had to plow out the road six times to clear it off. First plowing was the top 6″. And had to use chains on the tires and 4W low drive. Then the sun came out and I baked some cookies today. Next weekend, if it doesn’t do anymore global warming, I will have a delayed Thanksgiving for everyone.
Today we are having a real snow storm, not light snow. And it is bitter cold, a sort of cold Napoleon’s Grand Armee enjoyed while fleeing Moscow. The kittens are now cats and this is their very first winter. Panda, who has huge front paws with opposable thumbs, has been chasing snow flakes while her short haired sister, Tippy, is not as happy about this reversal of nature.
Today is Thanksgiving Day in America. We get to thank whatever gods or goddesses or flying horses, for our good fortune. Too bad, we let a bunch of crazed gnomes destroy our good fortune. We shall deal with them later!
But today, I have some of my family over for Thanksgiving Dinner. Alas, my own children this year are doing their own obligations with other relations in our extended family that lives all over Kingdom Come. So I make lots and lots of leftovers which I freeze for them. We happen to really like Thanksgiving leftovers. Personally, I think these are the best, the seasonings have time to percolate in the dark cave of the freezer.
