Yeah, they drive badly no matter what the weather, but the roads themselves are passable. When it snows, 4 lane roads become 2 lane roads with mountains on either side. Parking lots are half the size with 10 foot mountains of snow that take a long time to melt. In 2010 when we had about 5 feet of snow in several storms, the road out front of my house was barely 1 1/2 car widths wide. The people across the street were having renovations done, and the contractor put the dumpster in the middle of the street. Not only could a car not get by, but trash trucks and emergency vehicles couldn't get through. I had to threaten to call the county to get them to move it. They didn't want it in front of their house because she didn't want to see it when they looked out their window. Tough luck guys. They had to move it as per county code.

Snow's a pain.

We got less snow than anticipated, the rain-snow line was here. Just 10 miles to the west got a LOT of snow. We have sleet on top of a couple of inches, the snowblower won't work on it, so I'll be shoveling today.

The snow is bearing down,looks like more every time they run the models. I'm as prepared as I can be here at home, the problem is trying to manage snow removal at the condo where I'm a board member. People shriek about the job, then shriek about the expense. They want a 100% clearance for free. We don't shovel people's cars out, we can't even allow staff to help get cars unstuck. Two years ago, a tenant ran over our maintenance man's foot, he was out for two weeks on disability. Very expensive. So they're on their own.

All of us in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will be getting a Nor'easter Monday and Tuesday. March snowstorms are wet, heavy snow that usually result in trees and branches down, and power failures. Have a care everyone!

The 7:30 service this morning was sparsely attended. I guess a lot of people just slept in that extra hour.

My husband almost CHOKED TO DEATH yesterday, eating pretzels! He started to cough & ran in the kitchen to get water. Then, he staggered into the dining room & said...BARBARA, I'M IN TROUBLE! I CAN'T BREATHE! OMG!!!!!! I jumped up, started pounding him on the back & did the HEIMLICH! I REALLY got scared when I saw his hands SHAKING UNCONTROLLABLY!
MY HUSBAND IS ALWAYS "CALM"....EVEN IN A CRISIS....so when I SAW THAT.....WOW!
" I " had to remain CALM....& REMARKABLY .....I DID! I kept telling HIM to STAY CALM.
I noticed he wasn't choking any more & was able to breathe.
I gave him something HOT to drink, & he relaxed a bit.
I got him to sit down, & I looked in my sink, & found a piece of WET PRETZEL! I showed it to him & said YOU MUST HAVE COUGHED THIS UP.
He said....THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE! He REALLY THOUGHT he was a GONER!

THANK YOU, GOD......for leaving him here with ME! emoticon

Father Bob started his sermon this morning by asking how many people had hopped on a scale this morning. Diet seems to be the big thing people undertake for Lent. It was nice to have a priest see the humor in it, as well as the need to rely on God for help.

Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be FRIENDLY, It is the road to happiness.. take time to LAUGH..it is the music of the soul.
Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..
it is the key to heaven.

Yep trout tonight! Do any of you still do the Wednesdays without meat as well as Fridays? When I was a kid, Fridays were always meatless, Lent added Wednesdays.

Amen to that!

I made my Shrove Tuesday pancakes on Tuesday as well. I love flipping them in the air! I never do that with regular pancakes, as they are too thick and heavy. Plus, it is more fun with the larger Shrove Tuesday, traditional English ones.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Years ago I gave up eating between meals for Lent, then kept it up. The next year I gave up desserts, then kept it up. Then I gave up junk food and kept it up. Relying on God for doing something hard for a mere 6 1/2 weeks is a lot more doable than New Year's Resolutions, but since I am relying on God, I was able to come up with new habits. Seize the season!

I LIKE THAT about the "internal fast". Good idea.....

Also, in stead of just "giving UP" something for Lent; we could do something EXTRA.....
saying a special prayer every day, a rosary at least once a week, showing a little EXTRA kindness to others......things like that! emoticon

There are other ways to fast.. emoticon
internal fast consists of abstinence for "all evil" keeping our tongue in check, restraining our anger, avoid all gossip, lying and swearing. Here lies the true value of fast!
Take nothing to eat between meals today. emoticon

Yesterday went to mass, I was downtown and went in to mass a little late..
Have a blessed Ash Wednesday everyone. emoticon emoticon

Here is our new thread for this coming Wednesday, 01 March 2017!

I am preparing it now, as I will probably forget if I don't do it now.
