The snow started coming down around 7 pm on Friday and didn’t let up until Saturday afternoon. Once the snow storm passed through, the lake-effect snow machine turned on and the winds whipped up and everything that had been plowed was covered with blowing and drifting snow. Woohoo!
We ventured out to Starbucks in Franklin and met up with my friend Sarah and Frank worked on route cards and then his friend, Kyle, also a pilot, met up with him. Despite the awful weather we had a nice time. At around 2, Janice from church called to say that church was canceled last night. Since the wind was still blowing snow around and covering roads, we decided we weren’t going to Frank’s company party either. We stayed in and I made some spaghetti, which was pretty darned good if I do say so myself. I have to confess that I mooched the recipe for the sauce off of Carolyn (she rocks!) and it was stinkin’ awesome. Frank and I watched Collateral, which was surprisingly good. We had a generally rockin’ time just hanging out and cooking and eating. Wooho!
THis morning we went to church and it was packed. Don gave a great sermon about tradition and the good and the bad of having established traditions. What was cool was that I thought it was going to be a long one, but it was really interesting and relevant. Tradition the fuels belief would generally be considered a not good thing, but tradition based on faith and belief is a good thing.
So anyway – that is that. We have Bible study tomorrow, Turbo small group training Tuesday. I am jetting off to Cali on Saturday to visit Kate & Sean (& Ryan & Caitlin, too) – very excited to go out there. I would bet that it is much warmer out there than here 🙂 It’ll be trippy to leave the cold and snow for just a few days and then come back home.
Hope everyone is doing well!
