It is day 5 of the deep freeze in Portland, Oregon.
Yesterday, when I got home from work, my neighbors (who I know by their first names & who I have no contact info) had a burst pipe that was gushing water into their yard. It was flowing at an alarming rate & then immediately freezing. I called the Portland Water Bureau, & they did send someone out. I didn’t tell my neighbors that I was their hero. I think that good deeds don’t have to have their horns tooted. We are all here to take care of each other, right? Tonight we are to have snow & freezing rain, but Arctic Blast 2009 is to end by tomorrow night & temperatures are forecast of the 40s & 50s next week.
The Executive Chef of the company that I work for, advised me that he was worried about the pastry display at my store, because-" it looks like you have frigid muffins". Wow, nobody has ever said that to me before. I consider my muffins to be warm & inviting. I did come away from our meeting thinking that FRIGID MUFFINS would be the name of my new band though. Thanks Chef!
