Re: Yes...

Thanks. We'll do our best. The challenge is -- this storm caught us right before a shopping trip, so we're low on supplies. (We know better, but can't always afford to stock up as we'd like.) And the weather is crud for at least a week. We're supposed to get several inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. 0_o So, maybe after that gets plowed, it will produce navigable roads by covering the ice glaze. We'll have to wait and see.

Warm, yes. I'm very grateful for the power being on and hope it stays that way. We have a woodstove if we need it, though.

Positive thoughts are welcome. I'm still concerned about our trees under the weight of all that cladding.

Re: Yes...

Are both of you ok with gluten? I've found the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes is an easy recipe. You make about 4 pounds of it at a time, keep it refrigerated and bake as needed over 2 wks. It's no-knead and if you guys have flour, salt, sugar, water and yeast you're set. If the power goes off you could keep the dough in a cold room and bake in a cast iron pan with say doubled tin foil or in a cast iron dutch oven if you have one???

Master recipe here. They've also got a whole wheat sandwhich bread recipe on the site, it only keeps for a few days.

Positive thoughts to your trees too. I hope they are able to last through this storm.

Re: Yes...

We're okay with gluten, yes. I can bake bread if it comes to that. What we're running low on are the perishables. We're in no danger of going without food, just some stuff that we like and use frequently. *chuckle* I think my mother and I tried making bread with the woodstove a time or two, when I was little. Certainly we cooked on it more than once, but that usually involved saucepans or skillets on top, which works rather well.

Re: Yes...

Maybe there's some value in having Ramen on hand, after all. :)
