Everyone loves a big blizzard, don't they?
This evening, before I went to my Trustee and Administrative Board meetings, I got a call from the Conference office - our retreat is cancelled. This is inspite of the fact that the retreat information said "In the case of bad weather, the retreat will not be cancelled unless absolutely essential..."(their emphasis - actually they underlined those two words as well).
Several years ago, this same retreat was held in the midst of a pretty bad ice storm with treacherous driving conditions). Last year it was cancelled because of a lack of conference funds. This year, all indications point to the weather being the culprit.
During our meeting, one of the trustees got a call; Minster schools are closed for tomorrow.
Then, when Tara stopped at Walmart tonight for some groceries (just the normal shopping trip, mind you), she found that they were completely out of milk and bread.
Mind you, we haven't yet had the first flake of snow.
