For the third time this season, we had to skip church because of the weather.
The first service was canceled. The roads were not plowed in time for us to make it to the second service. The main roads were probably ok, but we saw a couple of cars get stuck on our street last night and there was even more snow on the ground in the morning. Then the plow came and we spent 45 minutes clearing the windrow. We are happy for the plough, but it does create more work for us. About 75% of the way through cleaning the windrow, the plough came by again, sealing our non-church attending fate. It's a good thing Creekside puts out the sermons on podcasts; we'll catch up on it later this week.
We've had a heck of a snowy winter. The UW weather station people say that with the last snowfall (37.5cm) we have broken the seasonal snowfall record of 245 cm. And I'm willing to wager we haven't seen the last of the falling snowflakes for the year.
The skies are sunny now but that doesn't hide the fact that we've shoveled 3 times in the past 24 hours. While it is a good source of exercise and of spousal bonding, I wouldn't mind if it was the last dump of snow we get for the year. The snow banks are higher than we are; there is no room for more snow.
