While all that snow fell we trekked to the grocery store, picked up a "dinner of side dishes" and sat on our couch. We read the New York Times, fed carrots and hummus to our begging dogs, and were careful not to tip over our wine glasses. By 7:30 we were in pajamas with shirts that looked like this:
