Down to Earth Romance

My family and I are digging out from the blizzard of 2016 in Southeastern Pennsylvania. There’s two feet of snow on the ground, and it will be another day, at least, before life returns to normal. But the sun is out, and we have that all-important heat and electricity to keep us warm and comfortable indoors. We were lucky to have heat and power during the height of the storm, when the wind whipped around our house in fierce gusts, and the roof held against falling limbs. We know others weren’t so lucky. The destruction of property and loss of life this blizzard caused is mind-numbing.

We kept a roaring fire going in the family room fireplace while the snow fell and the wind raged. I spent most of my time reading or watching movies. Then my husband and I spent a couple of hours baking. Though the storm outside was frightening, and we worried about our rural county and the surrounding areas, our creative time in the kitchen comforted us. Our chocolate chip and tart cherry biscotti was a delicious success. “)

The blizzard is over, but winter is not. I hope you are all safe and warm in your homes, that you fared well during the storm, and that spring will arrive on time this year.
