More Snow

This seems to be a December to break some records as to how cold and snowy it has been.  I think we’ve received over three feet of snow in the last two weeks, but I’m thankful that it didn’t come down all at once.  We’ve had three significant snowfalls of just over a foot each.  I get the driveway plowed out and the car cleared of snow and within a couple of hours the car is covered with snow again and the driveway is filling up with snow.  Yesterday was the worst of the three storms and school was canceled for the day.  Corry seldom closes school because of snow.  We have had two delays to the start of school, and yesterday started out as a school delay again, but before long the news reached us that school was closed for the day.

This morning I’m remembering a year long ago when we lived at Millertown and the church was holding a week of special meetings.  It may have been in January, or February.  Every day there was more snow.  The visiting evangelist was not used to snow and every morning he expressed his astonishment at the amount of snow we were getting.

I think these last two weeks have been like that.  December seems too early for so much cold and snow.  Will we get a reprieve in January and February this winter season?  That’s a comforting thought to hold on to.

Meanwhile, I am thankful for warm winter clothing,–coats, boots, scarves, a crocheted hat that stays on my head and wind can’t blow it off.  We all need a way to stay warm.

For the sake of all of us in this grip of winter, and that includes humans and animals, I hope the next few days will give at least a bit of a break from the wind, snow and cold.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    We had schools closed here because of Wind Chill. I never heard of that before.
    Back in the olden days, as long as the buses could get through, we went to school and played outside every recess and lunch hour. Of course, we were dressed for it.

    Nice to see you here, Judy! Our town was like you posted about the olden days, –until more recent years, and even yet, we might be one of the last to give in and close school for the weather. We did have some snow days, though. We are in the snow belt, and there were times that school had to be canceled for the day, –for students and teachers alike.
