I know that a lot of you are dealing with the same or worse though, and I'm reassuring myself that January is nearly done!
Anyway - we have had more bad weather this weekend. When I got groceries on Friday, it was apparent that people were preparing to be stuck at home.
The milk was being bought up.
And so was the bread!
The winds were gusting and the temperature with wind chill factor was -20. My brother-in-law Mark took this picture showing the white out conditions making driving difficult.
Of course I was scheduled to work this weekend and in my job, you can't just call in. We got about a foot of snow Friday night, and there were drifts about 3 feet high in the road. I took Bob's vehicle because it's 4 wheel drive and made it in, but it was a harrowing drive.
This is what some of the drifting looks like. A friend took this picture in a neighboring town - yes, there is a house back there!
There was more blowing and icy roads on Sunday and as I type this, it's snowing again!
It's good for me to remind myself that God is in control, even when I don't care for the outcome.
"He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour'."
