Dig In!

Well, if anyone was glued to the Webcam early afternoon on Sunday, they would haveseen me walking around and around the Observation Deck 15 times. We were in theclouds all day so it was not conducive to wandering around the summit. Unable to domy fairweather walk down the road to the Great Gulf overlook (my terminology), thelaps around the deck had to suffice!

Mid-November and the cog is still coming to the summit twice a day, the road isstill clear and we drove all the way up in a van and will do the same going down. Ihave never experienced that in my 7 other weeks up here. Several days and nightswere clearer and calmer than I have ever seen and it was extra fortunate yesterday AMwhen we arose at 4 to see some of the Leonid meteors. By contrast, we also had heavyrain and wind gusting to 86 MPH over the weekend, with temps down to the teens. Themountain never fails to provide!

But of course, my main mission here is to cook for the crew, which I enjoyimmensely. Somehow, I don’t make the mistakes I make at home when I am here. Nowonder I keep coming back! How fun it is to look around at what ingredients are hereand decide what the next meal will be. Our most interesting meal was Toad in theHole, which I had always wanted to try, and was spurred on by Observer Steve and hisBritish roots. The photo shows just how much he wanted to get started on the meal.Thanks to the wonderful crew for a fabulous week!
