Slip Slidin' Away

A winter storm warning that lasts for 2 1/2 days!!! That's right -- it's the good ole' midwest and I believe they said 33 states are effected by this one!
This morning brought about rare beauty! Yes, it's dangerous if you try and walk -- even penguins can't manuever in this -- and of course driving should be illegal on days like this -- but God's beauty shows through! The ice glistens on everything; trees, shrubs, grass, sidewalks, and everything in sight.
But supposedly this is just the beginning! We are in the line for much more ice and possibly snow on top -- what a combination! Schools are closed and city workers are doing the best they can to attempt to make roads drivable. We are staying inside -- although Monty did head to Lowes for some propane canisters for our little heater -- just in case.
It is sad that this weather did force us to cancel our missions training school classes for tonight! Just gives everyone a bit more time to complete their homework!
So if you are in this weather -- be smart and stay inside unless you just have to go out -- and then re-evaluate and see if it's really a necessity that you go! We aren't going to starve if our pantrys are a bit barer than normal -- nothing is worth getting into an accident!
If you aren't in this weather -- pray for those that are! I heard Dallas had a temperature of 20 this morning -- that is just not right!!!
Until next time . . . be smart, be safe and be blessed. Susan and Monty
