Winter Storm Approaches

It is thundering now. It's not too often you hear thunder in winter. The weatherman has predicted 6 to 12 inches of snow for our area.

Gail came over this morning for our weekly piano practice. We practiced our piece for this Sunday at Restoration plus several other pieces. I will be giving the talk, but with the weather the way it is, we will just have to wait and see if we even have a service. This Sunday's talk will be the first of a three-part presentation. The first Sunday of the month is always Humanist Sunday at Restoration.

Saturday night the Methodist Church had a chili competition. There were several kinds of chili to choose from. There was even chicken lasagne, which is what I ate (plus a bowl of chili). For desert, I had three pieces of chocolate covered peanuts (homemade).

We made a trip over to Tulsa this afternoon for a doctor's appointment. Afterwards we ate at The Cheesecake Factory. Our next stop was Hardesty Library where J got a book, and I checked out some CDs from the Teaching Company on the music of Robert and Clara Schumann. The course is taught by Robert Greenberg. I have heard other music course by Greenberg, an excellent teacher.

Ice is starting to coat the surfaces of anything it falls on. This brings the danger of power lines breaking and the loss of electrical power.

Variety is the spice of life, and sounds like you are getting a variety of weather with all that ice, thunder, and snow in Oklahoma. Stay safe, my Good Friend. I know you and your lovely wife will take care of each other. Hope to see you soon when this storm is in our memories and we have some good stories to tell. The snow is beautiful to look at when you don't have to get out there and "fight" it. Hunker down and enjoy.
