We are now digging out of the heaviest snow in the Washington area in thirty years. On Saturday, we were without power for roughly 17 hours' although clearing off the deck, we were able to use the grill to make a small meal. Our hats are off to Beijing man and Neanderthal man, who had to do grilling in the midst of an ice age winter, too.
It looks as if public worship will not be happening this Sunday, for many roads are still blocked. Our front sidewalk is a slash through towering walls of packed snow, something that might be called the Great Wall of the Eskimos rather than the Great Wall of China!
