Our electricity has been off & on and we've had lots of rain. Thankful that's all we got. A good portion of our town is out of electricity because some transformers blew. They cancelled classes at the high school but the other schools still had class since they were on the other side of town. I bet that mad some kids jealous.
In local news, sourdough starter is an unpredictable beast, but a very, very slow one.
My bread reserves were low so I used my normal Wednesday off to make a batch of bread. The starter was not propagating like it should, so instead of mixing up the dough Tuesday night I let the starter sit until Wednesday morning. Still wasn't doing right, but I mixed up bread dough anyway. Let the dough sit a few hours, no rising at all. I kneaded it a second time and put it in loaf pans anyway, hoping the yeast would catch up.
EIGHT HOURS LATER the dough started rising. Just in time to get ready for church. I had a hectic night last night, shuffling bread in and out of the oven around picking up bus kids and taking them home. Good thing I live four minutes from church.
Moral of the story: Never get involved with sourdough unless you have no life. People with lives of any kind don't have time for this junk.
Been busy in a neighbouring county, helping with a sex offender roundup. Folks there are some sick folks among us, and I have led a sheltered life. Didn't get off work until after 7. Tomorrow will likely be a repeat.
