More winter weather fun!!!

UGH. I, for one, am very ready for spring to hit northeast Iowa. We are under another winter storm warning. School let out at 1:15 today. Roads are ICY, and the wind is blowing quite hard. The light snow is blowing like crazy and drifting across the north/south roads.

Ask Ron how badly they are drifting. He and another pastor exchanged pulpits for Lenten services tonight. Ron called our church at about 8:30 and said he was stuck in the snow, behind a semi that was stuck in the snow. Unfortunately, the other pastor had already left and got stuck waiting on the OTHER side of the semi! At least Ron and George got to visit in a warm car while waiting for the semi to get pulled out.

Now...the question of the night...will there be school tomorrow or not?

Ethan had a visit with the orthopedic surgeon on Tuesday morning. His diagnosis is torn ligaments. OUCH. No wonder the kid was in pain. He's still wincing quite a bit when using it. He wears the sling to school, because he's afraid of getting it banged up, I think. But at home, we make him take it off and use the arm some. He's getting more and more mobility back. He's still taking tylenol, but slowly improving. He's glad "it wasn't something really BAD!"
