What a weekend!

The rain started Friday but because of the cold quickly turned to ice. It lasted all night Friday so Saturday we woke to an Ice Wonderland- all the trees were white from the ice and leaning, grass was white but the roads were fine. That was just the beginning they said of this winter storm system that headed our way. The second part hit us Saturday afternoon but was not as bad as the first one. But that is when the Trees started to snap around us. The third part of the storm came on Sunday bringing more rain, sleet and snow this time. As we all hibernated in the house to stay warm, we lost water for a while but were praising the Lord that we still had electric and heat. Missy and Clay lost their electric, as well as thousands in Springfield, Nixa and Ozark, so they were not alone. I cooked a big turkey dinner for us all on Sunday, early just in case the power went out. Missy and Clay and the girls spent most of the weekend with us in the evening because we had power. At night they went home to sleep in the living room in front of their fire place. Monday we all woke wondering what the weather was going to be like. We woke to snow and Lots of tree limbs down in our yard. With each limb came a crash and of course fear that one of those limbs would hit our electrical line or come crashing through the house. Some of the limbs were so big it took Mr. Bill's truck to haul them into a position where Clay, Sam and the boys could cut it up with a chainsaw. That was our adventurous weekend. They are calling for snow here again this weekend. With the weather like this and it taking us 45 minutes to get to church we miss out on Christian fellowship, so pray for us. It is hard to be with out the accountability for that long.

What was the weather like where you are at?
