This has been the worst storm we have had in over a decade, and it doesn't look like it will get better until late next week. After a night of trivial pursuit and apple brandy toddys, we slept under a foot of blankets last night, hoping that we would wake up with power as many in Portland are without.

Got the chains on the xTerra and we slid down the street to get a hearty breakfast and to pick up some supplies. Plan to spend the day watching the Seahawks game and making Irish coffees. :)

My co-worker and trainer at ABC's, Jared Mockli has been stuck on an Amtrak train since 8pm last night, on his way up to Seattle to see the Seahawks play ... currently he is still on the train and it is ironically stopped right next to the stadium. Feel bad for the guy, what a mess.

A huge tree fell on our neighbors house last night and we are supposed to get more freezing rain this evening. Keeping fingers crossed. I realize the weather is pretty bad across the US and I hope every one is safe and warm.

Up in North Dakota we got dumped on with snow but I must say I hate freezing rain more than snow. My only problem is that it hasn't gone above zero for the past 7 days and comming from Sacramento, CA where our winters never went below is stinkin cold.

Post your favorite apple brandy toddy recipe? We always have a bottle of decent Calvados in the cabinet, but not too many uses for it. Hope your power holds and that you guys stay warm.
