This winter is only beginning, yet we have already set all kinds of snow records. If it keeps up at the current pace, we are really in for a lot of snow. Last year we set a record for the most snowfall received in one season. We actually had snowflakes falling from the sky on May 10, 2008. Of course none of it stuck, but it was snowing nonetheless. It will be very fun to watch and see what the Lord has in store for us this year.
A number of buildings have collapsed in the area this past week, which has made it necessary for us to shovel our roof. Here is a picture of my son up on the roof in the midst of a recent heavy snowfall. He said that he really wanted to build a snowman up there, but stuck to his duties instead. He will be shoveling more today, and I hope he does take a moment and build a snowman. How fun would that be to have a snowman up on your roof?
And here is a recent picture looking across our front yard towards our neighbor's house. We don't normally have many blue skies around here in the wintertime, but here was a little patch with some sunshine, and it was snowing all at the same time.
