Spring? Ha!

We are currently hunkered down. Power, phone and computer are fine here in our off-grid world. Not so sure about the larger town; my work computer and phones seem to be down. Some "real" spring will be nice one of these days... Perhaps more posts later today as we figure out work and play! I'd love to be able to see the Lake waves, but the only webcam that would show that is out right now; blown away?

Pretty surreal for April! Tell that baby of yours to hang in there, don't even think about being born on a day like today! :)

I hope your new guest waits until the roads are passable to arrive. My daughter was born in the middle of a terrible snow storm in St. Louis. My brother had an accident just coming to the hospital to see his new niece.
