Let It Ice & Snow

Boy, have we got hammered by winter weather this week! All day Monday, the local and national forecasts were showing this massive winter storm developing that was going to be headed our way...they weren't wrong. Monday night the ice started to fall...and fall...and fall...and fall. For over 24-hrs nothing but sleet and freezing rain, ugh. Then yesterday night, we added about 4" of snow. Needless to say, school has been out the last two days and will be out the rest of the week. The roads here are very hazardous. Our power went out last night for about two hours, luckily around 930pm it came back on. My sister, however, was not so lucky. She lives about 45 minutes from here, and she has been without power for two days. To top it off, she is sick with a horrible sore throat and congestion. Bless her heart. So my hubby and my dad put the chains on the tires and headed to get her this afternoon so she could be warm and get some antibiotics. So my other sister and I, who were complaining about missing The Biggest Loser last night, seem pretty pathetic. Poor Jess. Hopefully when she gets to mom and dad's she can relax and start to feel better.
So that's all we've been up to for the last couple of days...just hanging out and "admiring" all the white stuff outside. Check out this pic of our beautiful river in all it's wintery glory.

All I can say to your reply is AMEN. I was telling my mom this morning that I stayed up till 11:30 reading your journey and that it made me realize 2 things: 1. I need to stop being so lazy 2. I still wish I could run without getting shin splints!

I did the Believing God study a few years back and on the 1st night I KNEW I was in for it. Wasn't sure what...but I knew the journey was going to be REAL and it was going to hard. And it has been and it has been amazing and God has been with me every step of the way. He is SO good.

Continuing to pray for you and I will watch as you continue so I know how to specifically pray for you. Our women are doing Esther right now 'It's Tough Being a Woman' and if it's ok with you, I will keep them updated on your progress.

Thanks for stopping by!! After reading your post, I feel absolutely silly for thinking any weather below 50 degrees is super cold......and of course a good excuse for the fireplace!
