..or how I showed by ability to be snowed in gracefully.

Our coffee machine *thinks* that it can get away with not making coffee. The clock works, but nothing involving actually turning on and making coffee will happen. For bonus points, it snowed last night and navigation is ... questionable. I analyzed the situation. We have a basket of grounds and something to go into it. We have water, but it will not heat or go up into the grounds basket. Solution: I fired up the electric kettle and added in boiling water cup by cup. I consider this to be a nobel-worthy accomplishment before my first cup of coffee. I am now on an unprecedented third cup. I am not sure if this coffee is weaker, or if I am just reveling in my accomplishments.

*giggles* What brand is yours? I had a GE grinder/brewer combo that recently had the same problem and had to be replaced. The clock worked, the grinder worked, but it would not brew coffee.

It's a cuisinart. It is not the grind n'brew, but it has a nice spigot that dispenses the coffee from an internal carafe.

Strange. I got an cuisinart to replace the GE model that died. Hopefully mine won't die on me! I need my coffee. *g*
