First off, I'm back!! Yay! *does a little dance because I have power AND internet*
Second, thanks for all your wishes for warmth and safety. It was a crazy snowtober, but thankfully most of it has melted and we were able to manage okay. I had to drive home in the snowstorm after work at 1AM because we lost power there too and things got very crazy, and the roads were horrible and terrifying and it was the worst driving experience I ever had, but I'm here and okay and I'm back to posting :)
