Freezing rain, building up on branches
I changed my feeder station, because there was so much
snow, I couldn't get to them where they were before.
For the 2nd week in a row, we have cancelled our Worship Service. Last week it was a snow storm, one of two, and this week, it is the freezing rain. This system of bad weather stretches from my old hometown, Windsor, Ontario, to the Atlantic Provinces. Some of us are getting just a lot of rain, others, freezing rain, and yet others, snow. Any way you look at it, it is not a great day to be on the roads.
It certainly doesn't seem a lot like Christmas for me, since the Church Services are what really holds the message of Christmas, the celebration of Christmas Joy and Peace. Without them the experience of this season is left wanting.
Christmas music, which speaks to my heart, is not the same when one is alone. It is with the church family, and our little choir, where the real Spirit of Christmas speaks. I am missing this experience very much. I also miss giving and receiving Christmas Hugs.
Listening to the news, and there are lots of warnings of bad roads, flight cancellations, power outages, and downed trees on wires. A few cars are travelling our road, but not many, and this is supposed to keep up all day, with snow and ice pellets to come. My goodness, I sound like the weather reporter.
