SNOW!

Armed with an array of weather forecasts, both online and on TV, I have made the decision to cancel all church services and meetings tomorrow. Never an easy call to make, but safety and common sense must prevail in the face of what media are calling a major, historic storm. The last thing I want is for people, most notable the elderly and those parents with children, to battle their way through a blizzard simply to come to church.

Getting this information out is so much easier these days. Within ten minutes of making the call the parish web site and the eBulletin had banner notices in red across the top of their front pages, and emails had been sent out to over a hundred addresses. Of course there were some twenty individuals who live outside of this tech world so I had to call them personally. Most were grateful and relieved, as they, too, had been watching the weather with anxiety. (One did however snort, "Storm? What storm?")

Of course I may have made the wrong decision, and we may wake up tomorrow to bright sunshine and a mere six inches of snow, but I think not. (If so, I can still live with it!) In the meantime I'm going to build an enormous log fire, light the tree lights, and open a bottle of red ...
