My house after more than a week of winter storms and temperatures near freezing This is the first time I dared venture outside my front door. The snow on top of ice made walking a delight! Photo by Patricia Davis.

I woke up a week ago last Tuesday and decided to place my order for groceries, just in case there was a run on everything like there was in March of 2020 when COVID-19 lockdowns began. I planned ahead, menus for three weeks, groceries, water, snacks, gasoline, anything I could think of.
