The taste of sand


As the Red River of the North reaches biblical proportions I have not had time to do any cooking. Instead I have been sandbagging for the last week. Even with temperatures as low as 10 degrees and blizzard like conditions, we will win this fight against the rising waters. Please be reassured that I am being well fueled by lots of kind folks bringing food and hot coffee to the front lines. I'll be back in my kitchen as soon as I can.

Cross your fingers and wish us luck. It all comes down to NOW.

I know so many people are working very hard there to help with the sandbagging. My thoughts are with you!

I've been following updates through my sister and was wondering how you were faring. Thinking of you and your family and hoping for the best.

Greg I've been thinking about you these past few days. I hope your home is safe and that the waters recede quickly. I remember your pics from last year (or was it the year before?) and this is much worse I know. Wishing for the best possible outcome for your city and the surrounding areas.
