We are expecting 3-6" of snow. I'm watching with a nervous eye as I wait for my call to go to the Mayo Clinic. It looks like they'll be getting snow too?

BM, (oooo, probably not the best nickname I gave to you)

They will clear those roads in no time---no worries! ;)

The UW is closed for the third day. I'm not sure such a thing has ever happened. But I still have power, which is not true for several hundred thousand people.

THAT is when you go visit LOVE2TRAVEL!!!! :)

By then, it should have warmed up to about 12 or so.

:lol::lol::lol:

Believe it or not, by July it can get up to 100F! Not often but it certainly is not uncommon. There is an area in Portugal that would be perfect for me - about 70F nearly always, with a variant of only 5 degrees. None of this icky -40 all the way up to 100 stuff!

Loves..I wouldn't want your weather..no way..no how! We've had temps way above normal most of the winter so far. It's just turning colder with wind chills below 0. We are expecting 3-6" of snow. I'm watching with a nervous eye as I wait for my call to go to the Mayo Clinic. It looks like they'll be getting snow too?

Sylvia..you can still go..just tell Loves you need to eat BEFORE you shovel..then stall... :D

Prickly..how dare you post those temps! LOL

I don't blame you. It is NOT nice. We are used to it, having lived in this climate all our lives, but that does not mean we have to like it! :P

Wonder how long you will have to wait for your Mayo Clinic appointment...

Wow, :o that's unheard of for universities. I know I never got that many days off in a row, even when we had Nor'Easters.

Glad you still have power. Hang in there!

If she feeds me before I shovel, I'll need a nap! :lol:

I expect I'll be doing some shoveling of my own tomorrow as they're predicting 3 - 5" of snow and then posssibly freezing rain/ice. Ugh! :o

That freezing rain is downright horrid. We had freezing rain awhile ago (a long while ago) and it froze solid so under our snow (we don't have much - just a few inches) is a thick massive sheet of ice. You could easily skate on the streets.

I hope you don't get any of that. Yuck.

I think we fared pretty well with about 3" of snow and a thin coating of ice over that. My neighbor across the street just plowed my driveway (NICE!) so after I'm sure it's over, I'll go out and shovel my sidewalks. Am wondering about my sanity when I bought this corner lot never thinking about having to shovel snow. Well, it wasn't yet winter when I bought it. :P

'Mornin all!

Yes, that snowy goodness moved up from Sylvia's house into my top right corner of the US--yippee ( <_< IH feigns false enthusiasm)

Snowing pretty hard right now. "They" predict GUESS :lol: 3"--but who knows what will happen. Honestly, it's been a dud of a winter, so I am not complaining. :)

May need to bake something later, however...can't go anywhere, might as well bake. :lol:

It looks like it's completely moved out of my area...so hopefully it moves fast out of yours.

I'm also thinking of baking...maybe today's the day for that *perfect* loaf of gluten-free bread. :lol: :lol: :lol: But first I need to shovel. Ugh!

Of course we don't think of these things when it is green outside, the birds are chirping and the flowers blooming. A corner lot would be OUCH in winter!

Actually, we sometimes do store stuff outside in the snow - it would be fine for at least five months, sometimes six. But not very often. Maybe if someone were to come and shovel the driveway for us that someone could find out for him/herself! :lol:

Sylvia, you are quite the bread/pizza maker yourself!! :)

I am making baguettes tomorrow. Hey - many of you may know this, but for making great (OK, great is exaggerating!) textured gluten-free bread, you heave your cold cast iron skillet into the oven, crank her up to whatever temp your recipe is, toss in goods, and then throw a couple of ice cubes onto the now-hot cast iron pan. The steam with the first initial few moments helps make the texture airier. Honest. It really does work and made a more desirable texture with my cinnamon buns the other day.

It never entered my mind. LOL But after my neighbor across the street plowed my driveway this morning, my next door neighbor used his snowblower on my sidewalk. I am very grateful to live in a development with such kind neighbors.

Not exactly...I can do pretty well on pizza but the bread is still elusive. But I don't give up!!! It's still better than anything I can find around here.

I don't have a cast iron skillet but I have on occasion put a pan of hot water in the oven when I bake bread. Doesn't thowing ice cubes in a hot cast iron skillet make it warp?

Not yet! It is what many professional kitchens do but then they have access to great equipment. You make a good point. So far I have not done it at high heat and my cast is so heavy that I cannot imagine warping. They are so heavy I must get my husband to put them in/take them out or I risk hurting my back.

    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
