Trapped like rats.  I'm sure everyone has a story or two to share about the most recent snow storm.  Since I am on the mend, any news of my condition is really getting boring.  Although for me, I am thrilled I can still swallow.  It makes food worth eating (we'll get to that in a minute).

I got to the store Saturday like most of the city and loaded up on Bread, Almond Milk and Egg substitute.  During the day Sunday, I spent much of the time snapping photos of snow and birds at the feeders.  I took Gilligan for a quick walk around the block.  He loved it until the snow kept collecting between his toes. 

Dottie did my usual job.  She shoveled the driveway.  She said didn't want me to have a heart attack.  I agreed: why waste all that money on Chemo and Radiation just to up and keel over. 

I fixed a decent Sunday Supper and we watched Downton Abbey in the evening.

Monday we waited for the snow plow.  We had a clean driveway but knew we would be stuck in the street if we ventured out.  Hell, almost everyone on our street knew that.  No one even attempted to go around the cul de sac (that we are at the end of at the bottom of a hill).  We started to feel trapped as we waited for the plow.  And then there was the TV news.  It consisted of endless weather updates and snow stories.  It was like it was snowing all over town and they wanted to show us every "flake" (sic). Give me a "break" (sick)! 

In the mean time, more photos.  I started dinner again.  Then right about 6 pm we heard it!  The PLOW!  Woo Hoo!  We ran to the window.  We were relieved that its coming gives us a shot at getting out on Tuesday.

Back to the food thing:  being captive because of the snow and frigid temps made me think of what Nathan must feel like.  He is a carnivore stuck in a house where the cook only makes Vegan dishes.  How awful that must be.

Sunday was Beefless Stew with vegan Biscuits.  Monday morning, we had biscuits and vegan sausage and for dinner we had Pasta e Ceci (chickpeas).  Enough already with the Veggies.  And I thought Dottie and I were trapped!

Anyway, here are a few shots I took during the...

Snowmageddon, or Snowpocalypse or Snowzilla.

I like snOMG but am really tired of OMG.
