    I don’t know exactly where you live, but from here, it doesn’t look there was any safe place to be yesterday.I hope you and yours survived with spirit and sense of humor still intact.


  5. You seem well fortified. And nothing on the counter will spoil, so you don’t have to worry about soured milk.
