Here in northern Joisey, we’re bracing ourselves for a snowstorm tonight that may dump up to metre of snow on us. Since the local fashion is, as in Third World countries, to put the power cables aboveground, strung from pole to pole like telephone lines, the chances of a power outage are very far from negligible. If that happens, then my Wednesday Noirish post (Julius Sizzer ) won’t be going up; fingers crossed that Saturday’s is safe.
Just to add to life’s joyfulness, I’m feeling lousy and have had to spend the day in bed. The big worry, of course, is that this might be flu. I don’t think so, but . . .
I’m supposed to be delivering my new book to its publisher by the end of next week. All of this stuff ain’t helping.
