So during supper tonight, Steph asked where we got the pizza from. She said, "How did we get delivery?" I said "No silly, It's not delivery, it's Digiorno's " Plus, for only $16.14 it was a steal. I also noticed 2 dozen eggs were $7.64, and the Peanut Butter I bought was $5.86. The sign on the eggs mentioned they were only one day old, fresh from the farm down the road, right next to the Pizza Hut, so that price is justified I guess. As the kids say "I joke". The prices are real though!

In other food news, we just bought 700 bucks worth of groceries. Hopefully that will last a while. Better. We bought $115 dollars worth of Parmesan cheese, because for some reason Kipnuk just makes us eat lots of cheese. In fact, we ordered three different kinds of cheese. Sharp Cheddar, Mozzarella, and 6 lbs of Parmesan. Watching TV tonight? How about some Parmesan.

The weather...

When there is not much to do, one seems to pay attention to the weather. Especially when the house is shaking. Like today, when Bethel set record highs with a balmy 42 degrees. One asks the question: What is going on? Last week, it was -29 below, with -52 below wind chills in Bethel. Today, 65 mph wind and rain, rain! What is going on? In our three years in Kipnuk, this is the strangest weather we have had. Twice this winter season (since snow fell) we have had south winds and rain, with lots of snow melt off. Before Christmas, the ground had about 1/2 inch of snow. It looked like spring! I have not chipped ice for water yet and it is January 19. Crazy, just crazy.

To make it all much worse, the satellite is shaking like a leaf. No TV, errrr
