Good Friday roads.
Today is Good Friday on the Christian calendar. We woke up to freezing rain very early and wondered if our church service would be cancelled. It wasn't. We live outside the city and it's a 12-15 minute drive to our church on a good day but today it took about 20 as there wasn't any traffic
due to the slippery roads as most smart people stayed home. Not too bad really but I worried all through church how we'd get back home and up the steep hill to our ridge. The freezing rain changed over to ice pellets which fell from 10:00 to about noon when it changed back to freezing rain. It was kind of a good thing to see the white road rather than slick ice so we made it home safely. There were about 200 people at the service - not bad for a stormy day. Since we are both involved with the music at church we 'had' to be there.
This storm system came all the way from Colorado leaving heavy snow, ice pellets and freezing rain in its path across the US and into Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. North of here they are getting a snowstorm. Our son and his wife have travelled north for the weekend to go snowmobiling as there isn't enough snow on the trails in our area. One last 'kick at the can' so to speak. :)
The weather for the weekend will have some sunshine and above freezing temperatures which will melt down some of the snow and ice we have....I hope!
We have a service on Saturday at 6 and again Sunday morning at 10:30 with special music and message. We've worked on the music for the past 5 weeks and we are blessed to have so many gifted musicians and singers in our church family!
We will have our Easter dinner on Monday at suppertime. I am sure most of you are celebrating Easter weekend with family and friends and attending special church services. I want to wish you all a very blessed Easter as we celebrate our risen Lord.
Now I'll try to get caught up visiting some blogs.
Have a super weekend!
