Inspiration from snow

Well, dear reader, I apologize for the great lapse since my last post. What can I say? Parish priests are busy around Christmas, and so this blog suffered a bit of neglect. I have a bunch of stuff queued up, as I always do after these dry spells. For a couple of days, I’ve been paralyzed — wondering how to suitable resume 7WD activity and begin this new year.

This evenings snow storm has provided the inspiration. Rhode Island is gripped by panic. We are getting 4-10″ of snow. Snow! Putting aside my bitterness that the parish Average Sunday Attendance will plummet tomorrow as people cower in their homes, I have decided to approach all this with levity. I bring you the Snow-pacalypse:

I could just as easily recorded tonights evening news from Providence. It would not have been much different. This is all part of our culture of fear — and so we must of course be afraid of frozen falling water. Sigh.

    Usually we don’t get snow in periods of extreme cold. However, this winter we’ve had several snowstorms while temperatures were down as low as -40 celsius (which is the same as -40 farenheit).

    Our former bishop used to remark on “a Sunday so bitterly cold that only the aged and infirm were able to make it to church.”

    Too weird — Sandy is right below Mt Hood – you’d think he’d seen snow before.
