From the CBC site in Saskatoon - we had a power outage at -40….stirred some controversy, but it did bring some goodness! See link.
Here in Indianapolis (Boone Co, north of the city), it is very cold (-20F) after a giant snowstorm (18 inches at my house).
Fortunately my family has power, but we've been playing games too.
Legendary (multiple times), Puerto Rico (used the Nobles for the first time), Airlines Europe, and tried The Market of Alturien for the first time.
Yesterday we also played Kingsburg and Flash Point.
Being snowed in isn't all bad - as long as the power stays on.
"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo. "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
Been very cold and windy here in central Michigan, so the snow drifted. One of our granddaughters got stranded at our house for a couple of days. She had planned to stay only one night. Fortunately she had come to play games anyway. And we played a lot of games! Today the streets still remain unplowed. Most of the neighbors got together with a couple of snow blowers and shovels later in the day. It was amazing to see about 10 folks starting at the end of the block and digging their way to the main road at the other end to make the way passable. She managed to get out this afternoon, thus ending the games.
During her visit we played (some more than once):
Rail Baron (introduced)
Shadows Over Camelot- Card game
We gotta do this again.
