Someone said today that snow’s the best thing that could have happened this weekend. Snow mutes everything: sound, fire, chemical and biological agents, and even dirty bombs. So, whoever’s responsible for all this snow, thanks.
We’re bracing for a gigantic snowstorm. 8-12 inches in one day is like three feet in Minnesota. They’ve cancelled church, which never ever happens. I think I’ve had church cancelled on me maybe three times in my entire life, and once was because we weren’t allowed to leave the base to attend (I was five and Germany was a little crazy with Iranian terrorists at the time). I’m relieved we’re worried about an act of nature, and not madmen. I can deal with snow. Snow is predictable. Snow falls, lands and accumulates. Terrorists plan, skulk, threaten, surprise.
