I must change the topic! And I will, just as soon as I mention that I erred yesterday. The forecasters predicted overnight lows of minus 25. But the overnight temps were rather mellow and never got below a minus 5. I erred in suggesting that Mr. Gore move to Iowa. And I take it all back. Today we will have a balmy 9 degrees above zero. No wind. It will feel like spring.
Bear with me. I will change topics at the end of this post. I promise. But before then I want to post a few photos. Here is the mailman delivering mail yesterday with winds gusting 20-25 mph and the temp hovering at zero. Brave man, that Postman.
This morning I watched out the window as the little girl next door took her dog out in the backyard for his morning walk. It was still below zero and they did not stay outdoors very long.
Also this morning a friend helped Hubby create a pathway to the garage out back. A friend in need is a friend indeed! Thanks, Friend!
Out our front window you can see that the drifts near the house are very deep.
And here at last! A new topic! Blueberries! Don't they look wonderful! Hubby brought them home from the big store in the City. I can't eat them today because I am getting a PET scan later today. I'm restricted to water. Water. Water. Water. No coffee, no nothing from here until my appointment time. I will survive, of course, but I sure would love a handful of blueberries right now.
Stay warm, you Local Yokels. And the rest of you, too, if you live in this huge area of record cold temps.
Remember that God is in charge of all things, including the weather. He will bring spring to us just as he has every year since I can remember. All is as it should be.
Genesis 8:22 reminds us that, "While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease."
