Powerless

One of my favorite things about living in the beautiful Pacfic Northwest is that we generally have winter. Winter that can be driven to within an hour. Or viewed on a sunny day, enjoying the distant blanket of snow on the Olympics. Or the Cascades.

And about every five years, we deal with snow and ice for about a week. We must have been due this year.

So with less than six hours into our power outage, it was time to find a solution. My laptop battery had died. My iPad was at less than 50% battery. My smartphone only wanted to text. Emergency calls only. Enough is enough.

Rescue me!

We arrived at our “shelter” to a warm meal. Handmade sausage. Rich pasta sauce. Farella. YUM!

And Casa de Meyer didn’t stop with a meal. Hospitality galore. The evening wrapped up snuggled under blankets, watching Food Network. Sipping on a glass (bottle) of Saldo. Then, bring on dessert. Fresh raspberries. Chocolate sauce. Whipped cream. Chocolate pound cake.

Is it really winter outside? I forget. Thankfully, it doesn’t take a storm like this one to slow down, enjoy life with good company and good food. But this was FABULOUS company and FABULOUS food! Much appreciated!
