Today marks our 16 consecutive day with below zero temps. Will warm up to about 4 above, though.
Here is a pic of some mini corn muffins I made with curry powder, green onions and chilis.

Marie-Thanks for the info about Ellen. I will definitely write to her and try to find out why she left TuD so suddenly and completely. There are still close to 300,000 people without power in this area. Your sister is not alone in having none. The authorities say everyone should have power back by Sunday. In my area, the schools are being used as "warming centers" for the people with no heat. I heard we might get another snow/ice storm Wed night into Thurs. I hope not!! Hope you have a nice time with your sister. Cat

Hello Marie. My night not too good. I just could not sleep. Of course the heavy rain was like a lullAby. Russ was up most of the night coughing, It has been almost 3 weeks for hum. BG110.I almost forgot I have the foot doctor at 2:15.Relatives from New York who winyer in Stuart said it has been very rainy and cold here but better than the snow of NT. Where do I find BarbAra;s Memorial. Hope the day us going well for yu/ My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Marie-Yes, we lost power yesterday for at least 14 hours. From the time we woke up until 9:00 PM. It was really cold so we took a ride in the car with the heat on and charged the cell phone. I haven't heard anything from Ellen and all of her messages on my page are gone. That is really strange. I hope she is OK. Check your page for her messages. About 500,000 people in our 5 county area lost power and many, about 300,000 still have none. More snow is forecast for the weekend, too. Gotta run to PT. Take care. Cat

Good Morning,Marie. I am sleeping annd doing much better. Poor Russ is up half the night. The minute he puts his head on the pillow he coughs. I do not know about Lots.She said another emergency. I have her address and I will try to track down her phone number. You told me some had died. Who was that?I looked doan at Cat;s message Barbars did she have a screen name? Are you sick of snow? How is the bread business? I just was not myself for a few days there, Give my best to Ed. Hope he sells a car, Take good care, A BIG HUG,Reed

Hi Marie. I'm concerned about Ellen also. If you find out anything, please let me know. Trudy

Marie-Hard to believe it is a week since Barbara's passing. It was terribly sad, she was such vibrant person. I am glad I got to meet her in June 2012 in Philly, when I met you and Ed. She will certainly be missed around TuD. I was not aware she was so ill. I guess that was her way, not to complain.
This Winter is already too long. We got 8" yesterday, and expect an ice storm tonight. Jim and I are emptying our house of so much "stuff". I can't believe all the things we have kept thru the years.
BTW I was able to connect with Rob Muller from Roche. He said the drum test strips are NOT being discontinued, my pharmacy made a mistake telling me that they were. It is the Advantage meter's strips that are being discontinued. I promptly called the pharmacy and told them about their mistake. I can keep using the Compact-Plus.
I hope selling picks up for Ed. Perhaps when the weather improves. Take care of yourself. Cat

Marie - thinking about you and praying for you to find peace. I know this has to be a really hard time for you.

Hello Marie. Feeling better every day. Still cough and my sinuses. Russ was coughing so much and with his bad heart he went to the doctor all kinds of antibiotics. I feel like a caged abimal. I have not been out of the house in 8 dats. How are things with you? I hope good. Give my best to Ed. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I did not have a good night. I picked up something yesterday that gave me a sore throat and head cold. I stayed in bed bid not sleep. Russ not good. Breathing heavy. He is in bed. Cold here 32 degrees and they say tonight will be about 25. This is the coldest it has been since I lived in Florida. Tom comes tonight. How are things with you? Your readings good? I was 106. Not much getting done today I am just not up to it. Take good care and give my best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

HI Marie- I don't think I told you that Jim and I are moving to a retirement community. We decided that our 8 room house was too big and took too much work to deal with, so we decided to down size to a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom apt. We are just starting the process of getting rid of "stuff" we have accumulated in the 44 years we have lived in our house. It is a big job, we do a little each day. I am still recovering from my terrible year and don't think I will ever be the same as I was before. A smaller place will be better for me.
We will, of course, take our 2 cats, as pets are permitted.
I am sitting here watching the snow come down. We are supposed to get up to 16" by tonight. Then the temp will drop to single #'s. I guess you are getting the snow and cold too. I hope you are feeling OK. My BG have been really good. Some days I don't even reach 100. My insulin needs are less too. Guess I'll go start dinner. Take care . Cat
