And we had no firewood for the fireplace. I soon ran out of battery power for my work on the book on the lap top. I could have tried to find a warm coffee shop with power but the roads were treacherous with the ice rain. My two grand kids found homes among their many friends that had power. Rose Marie had her work cancelled at the Aquarium, so we had time to talk about many things with candle light and blankets wrapped around our feet. This turned out to be a real blessing for bonding with my daughter.

I had to turn my rental car in today. Rose Marie followed me out and then I rode in with her from near the SeaTac airport to her work at the Seattle Aquarium. On January 15 one of the sea otters delivered a pup. A fairly rare event in captivity. The lights went back on while we were leaving the house this morning. Donovan was supposed to fly in yesterday from Salt Lake but his flights were cancelled and he is now to arrive on Saturday morning. Lisa was in Pittsburgh and is supposed to fly in tonight but I am not holding my breath on that one. This is one of the biggest winter storms I have ever seen in the North West.
