There's HOPE in the forecast

First of all, let me say this:  Sonya, the runner-up in my giveaway, has reported in.  Nita, the big prizewinner, has not.  I've saved all the name-slips except for the two that were drawn yesterday.  In the event that Nita hasn't claimed her prize by next Monday morning, there will be another drawing for the grand prize.  Nita doesn't have a blogger profile, so I have no way of contacting her. 
Now that I have that out of the way: the weather-guessers are predicting snow again, but they say it will only be a dusting.  Worst-case scenario they're giving is three inches.  After what we've had in the last month, that's not a bad forecast.  Not only that, it gets better as we look ahead:

That takes us up to mid-February.  Of course it could get down to zero again and snow a lot, even up through March.  But we know that cold spells aren't likely to last as long, and snow hopefully won't stay on the ground for weeks, as it's been doing.  Right now I refuse to think about the mud in my future after the snow melts.  

As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease." Genesis 8:22

On another note, I'd like to refer you to a blog entry worth reading over at Cliff's second cousin's site.  Click HERE.  You won't be disappointed.

We have a "big" storm coming Wed night they say. We'll see.


I woke up to snow a falling all over the place. The local forecasters missed it. Just like they missed the 6 inches we got last Saturday. UNBELIEVABLE. Stay warm and think SPRING.

That verse always gives me hope whether it's the middle of January or the middle of August. Seasons do change... even in the midst of all this global warming. Or global cooling. Or global swings. (I think they're running out of names to call it). :)

Our weather person said the same. As a matter of fact he had that word HOPE right plastered right in the middle of his forecast. I don't think we'll be warm as you but warmer than now for sure.
