We made the mistake of going to the cabin first to inventory what supplies the kitchen already had before going to the grocery store...and when we tried to leave to get groceries, we
Yep. We were trapped. This cabin is a wonderful place to be trapped, but we want something to eat while we're trapped.
There was a little bit of snow and ice very steep and winding hills leading to the cabin. At first glance, this sprinkling of snow seems like no big deal, especially for a man who lived in Pittsburgh most of his life and navigated snowy roads. But there was also ice along with the snow and when we tried to get back out we couldn't get back up the hill to get out of here. We don't have four wheel drive, snow tires, etc. Larry called the owners of the cabin about getting some help and a maintenance guy did come and salt the road but when Larry tried to make it up the hill again he couldn't.
We had nothing here in the cabin but some tea and coffee that I brought, and no one who really knows me is surprised by this as I am never without access to those two beverages.
We're blessed to have two fireplaces to keep us toasty warm, and have done away with alarm clocks and watches, and "must do's", and are enjoying being without all of our many responsibilities for just a little while. By the way, I could do my work at NextJob from here if I were stuck here forever with no problem. I have wireless internet and free long distance to anywhere in the USA. I could be trapped and do NextJob...what a comforting thought that is and what an amazing job I have. But, you can't be trapped and pastor a church. I really do need to get back to the church by February 21 so please pray that someone rescues us by then.
