Sunday, January 15, 2017 – Freezing Rain in the forecast, Leisurely Sunday
A very large and cold winter storm is forecast for the mid-west. We have a 90% chance of an ice storm over the weekend. Road conditions and driving are predicted to be very hazardous. Icy conditions are very bad. Last night at our performance of Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo” we heard that two of our cast members took falls on ice during the day. They are fine but it could have been much worse.
As a precaution all of our Sunday services were cancelled and the historic site will be closed today as well. Better safe than sorry. I’ve seen reports that some of our neighboring communities have been hit and hit hard. We’ve been lucky so far. We’ve had light rain so the ice isn’t bad yet. When it does freeze it will be very bad. We are waiting for word to find out if all the sites and FM will be closed tomorrow.
Today has been a peaceful and leisurely Sunday for Sis. Johnson and I. I’ve had a chance to catch up on some projects of reading and writing. We were also able to phone and talk to some of our family back home as well as texting back and forth with others. Sis. Johnson made snickerdoodles this afternoon. Cookies and hot chocolate are wonderful on a cold day. It’s been a very nice Sunday.
