Awaiting the big blow ...

I'm busy glazing pots in the studio for the next firing. But the snow is falling a bit harder now, at almost 4 p.m. here on Cape Cod, than it did earlier today. And the wind is picking up. Predictions are for big snow and big wind later tonight, and for snow accumulations somewhere between one and two feet.
Hey, it's winter. It happens.
We're hoping to survive without any loss of power. We'll see. The snow is likely to be heavy and wet, not a good combination for power lines.
Meanwhile, we have a pot of baked beans cooking slowly in the oven. Should be ready by about 6 tonight. It's my mother's basic recipe, with onions, mollasses and mustard, though I also put in sausage to liven up the beans a bit. That pot should last us a couple of days, if necessary.
That's it from Blizzard Central. Stop by and have some beans if you're in the area.

I hate to tell you that I walked outside today without even a coat on. I am so sorry for the weather coming your way, but at least you will eat well! Stay warm and safe, fingers crossed you don't lose power!

Good food should make it better if the power goes out. Stay safe and warm.

Here in southern RI near the Ct boarder we've had about 8". The wind is picking up and temp seems to be dropping a bit.

The beans look perfect for tonight. Take care and stay warm.
