So it snowed in Western Mass over the weekend

It’s been a whirlwind few days, internetz. I travelled to Columbia for a DH field trip on Friday and returned to Northampton on Friday, hosted a wonderful overnight guest, and then prepared for the storm on Saturday morning. By Saturday night, we lost power that wasn’t restored until Monday. We still don’t have heat or hot water. Thanks to the generosity of friends, we’ve been able to shower and enjoy a hot meal.

Hampshire is still closed, so I am working at my favorite coffee hub in Northampton to work on my email backlog and assess my calendar for the next few days and juggle appointments.

I feel like a kid on an extended snow holiday, gleeful for free off days, but anxious about a lost routine. I am grateful to be safe and (mostly) warm.
