Another Storm

The Blog Tech bought me flowers for Valentine's Day. Thank you so much, BT!
 I made stuffed cabbage for the shelter for Valentine's Day.  I had my Polish helpers lined up but they both had to work.  So, I made 300 cabbage rolls by myself.  It took 9 straight hours.

 Then I made 32 quarts of very rich mashed potatoes.  This was very heavy food.  It took two of us to carry the stuffed cabbage.  When I arrived at the shelter, there was no one around. As soon as I placed the food in the warming trays and the smell drifted through the shelter, all the men started gathering around to see what their dinner was going to be.  Making this food is a lot of work but when I see the men's reaction to it, it is always worth the effort. When I pulled up to the delivery door, someone announced on the PA system, "our most delicious dinner just arrived at the back door, can some volunteers help to carry it in?".

We had more snow last night, about 6 inches.  Teddy has finally had it with the snow.  She looks at me like it is my fault.

 She just sits and stares until we shovel.

 And there was a lot of shoveling to do.

 The snow melt system has had it too. It stopped working.

This chair was empty last night.  Even my thermometer has quit working. It was 12 degrees when I took this.
