Harvey: Not an Invisible Rabbit or My Childhood Friend

Posted: August 26th, 2017 under Life beyond writing.

Hurricane Harvey’s outside edge reached us about an hour and a half ago: rain and a slowly but steadily increasing wind (not overly strong–about 15 mph, says the weather, with gusts to 23.)    We are in a good place for having a hurricane coming over us, and much luckier than those closer to the coast or, inland, closer to the eye.   We have supplies, we’re over a hundred miles from the eye, we have both distance from, and elevation above, the nearest watercourse.

    Will do. About to start a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Warm chocolate chip cookies will keep me from investigating the outdoors…

    Good to hear you are safe, wondering how many batches of cookies you plan to bake to ensure you stay indoors. 🙂

    Sharidann: Two so far, and probably another one today, where baking alone’s concerned. That first batch of dough was 5 dozen worth, so I baked a dozen and stored the rest. Yesterday we had company for lunch, so I baked another dozen using the stored dough, and today will require another dozen. And probably tomorrow and Wednesday. I do find chocolate chip cookies, warm from the oven, especially *soothing* at times like these.

    Or do you have a secret sib recipe somewhere? 🙂
