They have cast iron cookware in their camping gear department, but that is also rather pricey, and not on sale. The skillet for $22.99 looked a bit smaller than the one I had, and felt a bit heavier, but would surely be workable. I might get one later. I did see one other item I'll probably go back and buy at some point. It is a two-pack of LED lanterns that run on three AAA batteries, and it was a reasonable $16.99. My battery powered lanterns that burned up were a bit larger and a bit cheaper, but I haven't seen anything like them anywhere in Chico, so this is probably the best I can do here. They also had two kinds of real, substantial tea kettles, but they both had metal handles, which strikes me as a bit dumb. I don't want to be using a potholder to pick up the kettle every time I boil water.
I'm really hoping I can get a ride to Safeway this week, as they have good deals on several items I could use, but there would be too much to carry on the bus. None of the other stores have much of anything interesting this week. It might be that I won't get to go, though, since tomorrow is the last mild day for a while. It's supposed to start raining again on Friday afternoon, get very rainy and windy on Saturday, and then showers will continue into Monday. Maybe I should go get those battery powered lanterns tomorrow. Even if I freeze because the power goes out at least I'll have light to read by.
My brain seems to have run dry. I thought there was something else I was going to say, but I guess not. I am getting rather tired anyway, so I should probably just read for a while and go to sleep.
