Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom you will the one to suffer. (Proverbs 9;11-12)
We know we are blessed. Our driveway and sidewalk are cleared of the snow. There's one lane open on the street in front of our house. The nearest grocery store, within walking distance, is open and there is bread and milk to buy. Someone must be doing lots of baking because there isn't any sugar. Today the federal government leaders decided to keep the government closed for a second day. Cyndi's work follows the government schedule so she is safe at her apartment for a second day. Parking fees at the county garage where Cyndi left her car have been waived until at least Thursday. Our lights only dimmed once and the furnace is doing it's job. I was able to get a ride to the hardware store yesterday afternoon where I bought a poorly made snow shovel for $25.00 to replace the one that was stolen. I walked home with my new shovel and two containers of milk. At one point while I was walking on the highway a pickup truck of Latinos stopped to ask me where I bought the shovel.
Today we are waiting for the next snow to start falling. Last night they predicted it will start about noon and accumulate another foot or so. If this happens the government will have to close for a week.
