As a passing note as to how cluttered Nellie’s house was? Her daughter hired a cleaning crew. They’ve brought the back of a semi truck to cart things off, with extra dumpsters. They’ve been working almost non-stop (they took a break on Sunday afternoon) since Friday. They’ve hauled that thing away six times to the dump and back, and they’ve only made it into the living room. They get here at 7 AM every morning, and they don’t stop until 6 PM.

On the snow/ice storm front: Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, we’re expected to get anywhere up to a foot of snow. Could be more than 12 inches, could be less, but if it’s heavy and wet anywhere they’re already warning that there could be power outages. Sleet is also expected as it turns into a blizzard. Mom and I are gathering coats and blankets just in case the power goes out. We have so much bread and regular food, we have water, we have blankets and warm clothing, we…have discovered that the gas heater we obtained was installed incorrectly and therefore cannot be turned on. It would wreck the wall to remove it, so there it will stay. It also has a bit of fine print against the wall stating not to use it if there’s anyone anemic in the house or planning to be in the house. We are trying to find the little propane heaters Dad bought after the ice storm years back.

(If anyone wonders, yes, he will be stranded at the hospital for the duration.)

Oh, and they’ve named it Winter Storm Euclid. So we can blame the Father of Geometry.
