Make doughnuts for Mardi Gras celebration

February 14, 2010
By PATTY CHRISTOPHER

Middle of February and Mother Nature has let us know she still knows how to host a winter. We haven't had as hard a winter as many other areas of the country, but many of our folks in the valley have had problems with power outages and frozen pipes. We have been so lucky here on the hilltop - so far - as we haven't lost power and have had minimal problems with these old pipes. Our fuel tank is sufficiently full, and we have a fully stocked freezer and pantry. We are thankful. So far, I have really enjoyed the snow, as I don't have to go out of the house much. I did try to walk to the mailbox the other day, and promptly fell down in the snow with the second step I took. As I crawled out, I decided there was no mail important enough for me to try it again. We seemed to have more here on the hill than there was closer to the river. Of course, the kids will be celebrating the Fourth of July at school if it keeps up.
