That's what the Farmer's Almanac said we would have this year. And we have. We missed some days of school because of extreme cold. -5 or so real temperature and -20 to -25 or 30 wind chill. Even when it warmed up a smidge and some of the snow melted, it would get cold again. There was another day or two when we could have been out of school because of cold, but were in session.
This has been the scene outside of our house several times this winter.
Even in the midst of the cold, dark winters of our lives, God grants us some amazing vistas and reasons for hope along the way.
