Incommunicado 

yesterday flurries of snow last night high winds and a day without electricity!

This morning white hills winds and still no electricity.  It is surprising just how much I rely on that invisible product.  Even the battery on my phone is dying and it is with the phone that I am making this post. I feel like an intrepid explorer sending out a last message from a remote bivouac 

Apologies for not being able to reply to emails. Hopefully normal service will soon be resumed. For now we are off to walk the dogs so at least they will be happy!
