Winter arrived very early this year. Last night there was nasty, bone-chilling rain. This morning I woke up at 5 a.m. to snow on the ground and no power on my street. It snowed most of the morning, but the accumulation was not much more than an inch or two. Then the sun came out, and the afternoon was bright as can be, leaving the roads reasonably clear and dry.

I just spent the last hour or so writing up my latest theory on Identity Crisis, and then the power kicked off again for a minute, and the entire post was converted back to random electrons. My battery back up appears to be toast, because there was zero grace period before the machine shut down. Now that I think of it, it's at least five years old, so it's probably past due for replacement. Bother. So, now to reconstruct my post while saving often.

So, Identity Crisis... Collapse )

In other news, I hauled out the breadmaker for the first time in a while, and made my famous maple-oatmeal bread. It came out great. Woo hoo! Fresh bread!
