We went back and forth as to what should come with and what should stay, and, like any crisis situation, we began to realize that it really didn't matter. So today, I will probably see if there is some other things I can leave behind in order to lighten the load, just in case.
It is snowing and sunny.
Since everything is packed, I had eggs fried in a baking pan for breakfast and toast grilled over the open flame. It's like camping.. with two cats!
