BSK, checking in

Super Bowl Sunday, around noon, my systems went wacky. They are still not up to normal … even for up here in the wilderness, so I am writing from Cambria. While I have and had 4-5 bars, everything was connected, up and “running” – the phone didn’t ring, and people who tried to call were directed straight to voicemail, which then did not show up for 18 hours. I couldn’t get email, twitter, FB, OR TV. Wonderfully isolated from the world with my critters, a fire, and a book.

I have had a fire going constantly since Sunday morning – or was it Saturday? Time has not mattered. It stood still for me. I stayed warm and comfortable. This morning, heavy frost covered everything, causing the dogs to slip and slide as they escaped thru the front door. I had to go out in it to keep an eye on my blind dog as his now-absent scents could not guide him, but I stoked up the fire when we came back inside.

The photo below was taken Monday morning when SOME the clouds cleared for a few moments. Yes, snow at the higher elevations although I heard from a north-facing neighbor at 3000′ that they had snow. Not me.


If I don’t post tomorrow, know I am preparing for the next rounds of showers (varying reports on those) and keeping warm, puzzled by my systems.

  1. I’m puzzled by my systems, too, but they’re the interior ones rather than those that provide internet. 🙁

  2. The most important news–& thank you for managing to send this–is that you (all) (y’all sounds hokey for a NY’er) are cozy (warm+dry+together). All else can wait.

  3. That’s one beauty pic, Kate.
    And sounds like all the important systems in your life are still ‘go’.
    Cold here, feels like snow at sea level. Glad for the rains.

  4. Well, Suzi called tonight… It rang. I let it go to voicemail, and it showed up immediately! Can Internet and TV be far behind? Hmmm…
