Greeting from a very snowy and very cold Eldred, PA. Yes, winter storm Harper came to us in full force. When we went to bed last night, I almost thought that the forecasters had missed the forecast. But, this morning – as light broke – it was still snowing. Once it was light enough to snow, I bundled up to start shoveling. In most places, I shoveled 7 to 8 inches – now that was in addition to the 4 or so inches that I shoveled yesterday. As I first started shoveling, the wind started blowing things around. I got all the sidewalks at the parsonage and the church shoveled and waited for our snowplow. He arrived around 9:15. We decided to cancel Sunday School, but we added a worship service yesterday, just in case there were those who didn’t want to venture out this morning. By the time the worship service arrived, it really wasn’t too bad, except for the cold. Right now it’s not bad, but tonight we are forecast to have some dangerously low windchills. We had a good service this morning and yesterday morning. As I listened to the sermons, I think yesterday’s was better, so that’s the one I posted.
We also had a good mens breakfast yesterday morning. It had already started snowing, but the men showed up and the restaurant did a great job.
This past week, Pam and I did get to go to Hamburg, NY for a district meeting. We always enjoy our time there. It’s good to catch up with our friends.
Tomorrow, I think we are going to hunker down. No one has to be at work in the morning and it’s going to be cold. Other than that, it looks like a pretty normal week and I am looking forward to it. Have a great week!
