T-Day preparations

Have you all finished your food shopping?
We have, and most was done Sunday.
One or two more items yesterday, but I think we are good to go.

There was the minor inconvenience of a power outage this morning, but not long enough to consider cooking the turkey early. And we never lose power. Well, hardly ever. (There was a crow fricasee on the transformer once.)

Of course, our original plan was to skip the day of feasting and take a long walk instead.
That is, if the weather cooperates at all.
We have had probably 2-inches of rain over the past day. I heard it was some sort of record. 
If we can’t walk (or don’t want to walk in the rain), we will just eat ourselves silly.

Either way, there will probably be some naps involved.

I heard from the source that Rey made it to St. Louis intact.
Fog and mist were his primary difficulties, and they sounded reasonable.

Safe travels to any that are traveling.
Over the river and through the woods ….
And if you are a salmon in the outlying Seattle area, over the road to follow the river, click below.

      You are not supposed to put grease (FOG) ((Fats, Oil & Grease)) down the drain. But usually that doesn’t happen until after the meal is cooked.

    Roto-Rooter man said we should talk to our municipality. Apparently our sewer line to the main line is too flat. Instead of having water in the U between the access point and the main at the proper level, the flatness means that it is actually at the level where it easily backs up. He drew a picture which made this much clearer than the words. I know about FOG, but wonder about all the times I was washing my hands b/c they had grease on them. However, our sewer has backed up many times over the years, and mostly not on big cooking days. Just glad he got there early!
