DH and our sweet neighbor girl, home from college, are filling the screen porch with wood. I am doing a wash (power might be out tomorrow) and cooking. We had a lovely roast for our anniversary supper and delicious apple wine Shanna had left for us.The leftovers have gone into pasties which I have just pulled from the oven. Dough is rising for bread and pizza and an apple pie is in the next cooking patch. My tub has several filled buckets awaiting distribution in the morning to thirsty animals. Being ready is important to weather the storm well.
