As I was saying yesterday, this week's expected New England blizzard was a bit of a surprise for me. Today was committed to preparing to get through the next few days, which could mean a power outage in cold weather.
What I also did today was some work prep. First off, I posted the Connecticut Children's Lit Calendar in case I can't do it later this week. Additionally, I printed out some material related to the short work I'd decided on last week. The plan, and I have one, is to find some moments to at least outline some of these things. In the event that there's no power, I'll go back to working in the old paper journal. The best part of this scheme is that it directly addresses one of my goals for this year.
Maybe we won't lose power after all, and everything I did today was for nothing. One can hope. Hmm. Perhaps I should be thinking about an essay regarding why we worry so about the lights going out.
