STILL SNOW AND ROADS CLOSED......

Sunday, July 24, 2011

WOW....it is still snowy and the roads in and out of our city are still closed....don't remember this happening to this degree before....not for this long anyway.....
The road north closed behind us yesterday and it is still closed...amazing....and it is not as though there is a lot of snow on the hills around our place however it is certainly on the ground and causing havoc.....
Hubby went to work around lunchtime which was nice for him to be able to chill at home this morning without feeling guilty for not having tried to get to work....a real attitude change for him which is awesome....once upon a time he would have risked everything and has done...even crashing in the ice..... to get to where he is supposed to be....a nice change for him not to be doing that today.....

Had some students stuck on the highway last night however they finally got home about 9pm....
Another young couple got strande in the town where our little church is and a young couple form our church took them home....was really stoked at how God works.....totally awesome....

The snow is starting to thaw a bit around our house so hopefully we get out for dinner tonight to celebrate the birthdays....the place we were going to is not going to be open tonight so I am sure we will find somewhere else.....

SO...from the cold south of New Zealand....and I believe the North Island is going to get what we have had....I will say Bye for today and catch you all again tomorrow....
Hopefully it is warmer by then and the temperature is above 0 c.....lol

    Too bad we can't put your weather and my weather in a bag and shake it up and both of us get in the middle. Been in the 100's here in Arkansas off and on for a while now with all kinds of heat warnings. If the summer were over today we would have the hottest summer on record. Right now snow sounds good, but I know I'd be complaining if it was really here...lol. Stay safe.

    I live in Michigan and this week has been in the 90's. Ugh! High humidity. We don't WANT to go outside.

It sounds crazy....but I'm missing, and ready for, some cold weather again and then I read a blog like yours which is a reminder that I can wait for winter! emoticon

Nice to hear the story about the young couple from church taking home the stranded couple! People step up when they get a chance. At least, MOST people.

Stay warm, think warm thoughts! Stay safe! emoticon Hot chocolate!

OMGosh.....SNOW TODAY....

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Couldn't belive the ice in our diveway when we came to leave town to go to our little flock this morning...it was like a skating rink...even the ducks couldn't walk on it....

Started snowing during church and that was all good as it wasn't settling HOWEVER the trip home proved that it had been snowing for some time and it was certainly settling.....we did make it home however only just...took us 2 hours to make a 45min trip....and it took us 1 hour to get down a dtretch of road that was less than a kilometer....the road was closing behing us ....am so pleased that hubby was driving otherwise we would not have got through.....his skills was all that got us up the last hill when cars were strewn all over the road and crashed into banks and each other.......BUT...we made it.....thank you Lord....

It is still snowing so needless to say no walk today but that is ok....
Was nice to chill and we will see what tomorrow brings.....

Enjoy your warm weather....lol...
Blessings

PS....my sermon went really well today and was well received....yay...the start of something new....lol

    Glad you made it home, I hope others did too. Always scary when the roads are so icey. Also the first one of the season is always the worse, seems people have to relearn how to drive.
Take care and stay warm.

    Wow! Send me some snow! We had a break in the 20 plus days of triple digits but today & next week ...they're back! We are the only people for miles that are watering their grass so we have had all kinds of critters looking for water. Despite the watering the grass is dying. Have to water the flowers twice a day. What is left of the veggie garden seems to be doing much better than the grass. Too many cucumbers and watermelons, bell peppers are ok but no tomatoes (only plants).

  Where are you? I didn't think it snowed anywhere in the lower 48 of the US in late July.

WooHoo..... Saturday.....

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Well haven't done at all very much today.......fully chilled on the computer this morning....finally showered around 1.30 then went for an 8k walk....really enjoyed it considering it was my first walk since last Monday....
Am going to talk to the nurs on Tuesday about these B12 injections....apparently they are supposed to boost your energy almost immediately....unfortunately I am not experiencing that....they deplete what energy I have for at least 4-5 days and also these headaches that come with it as well....nevermind went walking today so that is a start again....

Was another lovely day here however it has certainly cooled down now....

Am planning on a really nice chill evening....
Have written my part of the sermon for tomorrow....my husband wants me to preach what i have writtenas hethinks it is really good and right on the mark for his message....so ....why not???? haven't got a lot to loose by doing it.....lol....

Off to get some bits from the supermarket then I think a nice wine is on the menu......Enjoy your saturday....

Enjoy your sermon tomorrow, it will be wonderful.

    Sounds wonderful! I'm glad you take the time to have a "Lyn" day a couple times a week. You deserve it! It's something we should all do too.

I'm sure you enjoyed it and are already looking forward to the next Lyn day coming up. emoticon

Hope it warms up over there a little bit. With temperatures at 99 here, frost sounds good to me though.

Have a good rest of the week and a nice weekend coming up.
