Palm Sunday

was spent at the Church of the Kitchen Table with Morning Prayer led by Deacon MacBook. With over a foot of new snow on the ground with pretty stout drifts and an unplowed road, worship at my usual place was out of the question. The 8 am service was cancelled last evening, and around 23 or so showed up for the 10 am Eucharist.

A bit of a twist was added to the drama--our rector was out of town with her youngest son doing college visits, and my former rector was scheduled to be the supply priest. However, he flipped his tractor clearing Monday's snow and broke his arm. He still managed to get to church today to preside at the 10 am Eucharist. One of the two deacons got there as well.

Taciturn spent over 3.5 hours digging out our driveway. The county snowplow did not come until 2 this afternoon.
Try to get into my front door!

Enough already! of the snow that is - sure hope the forecast looks better for Easter! otherwise searching for those easter eggs in the snow will be a real chore - especially if you choose not to color them!
