Effects of Recent Catastrophe

First, let me give the happy update that our freezer isn't broken. Ben had turned the dial all the way to off, so it just had to be turned back on. And I caught it in enough time to get most of the food out and into the fridge's freezer, so we're good there. Yay!

Second, let me add the next Broken Things adventure. Chris had meetings before church, so he was driving separately than me. Luckily, I happened to be following him in the van when the clutch just quit working on his car. Goodness. Just fits the theme we've built up for 2014, eh?

Positive Review of that moment--our home teacher drove past right then, pulled over, and had a tow hitch on his car. We happened to have a tow rope in the van. And we gave our home teacher his first opportunity driving a car being towed. Experience, man.

Positive Review of today--Chris only had one class today that was over at 10:00, so he was able to come home early and take apart his car to diagnose the problem. This is what he found.


And here's the fix.


And it works. Yay! Free tow, free fix. The end.

Breathe a sigh of relief.

And now on to the real story of today. Remember the apocalypse two weeks ago? Well guess what...it's supposed to snow again tomorrow.

Let's note here that it hasn't snowed yet. At all. But school is cancelled tomorrow...and Wednesday.

We were short on bread, so I went to the grocery store this evening. Apparently everyone thinks the world is going to end again because they were all at the grocery store, too.

No shopping carts. The only one there showed up right when I took the picture.


Severely depleted bread supply.


Lines halfway down the aisles.



Panic is setting in around the city, I think. I'll be interested to see how much/if it actually snows.
