Thar' She Blows!

Whew! We finally get to let off at little steam! I have to say, this, so far, has been a little anti-climactic. However, for me, the drama is still there in the code red status and the fact that, truly, anything can happen at any time! The Bakery's proximity to the water has me looking out at the tsunami warning towers from my baking table and hoping that, in the event of the unthinkable, time will be on our side...It didn't help that, this, my first morning back after my spring break vacation, I walked into work to find the electricity was out (at first i thought they were having a suprise party for me, cause they missed me so much...i was so wrong!) and all these customers sitting quietly in the morning darkness...we lit ALOT of candles and heated water on the stove to make coffee 'the old fashioned way' and kept the baking schedule on course because we are mostly baking in the Brick Oven! People came down as their houses got cold and finally after about 3 hours the lights came on and things were humming away like normal...would you like room for cream in your coffee?
Don't you just love a mellow day at the Bakery while mother nature to has her way with us?!
