URGENT CALL TO REPENTANCE: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Five Inches Plus
Good morning, world!
We had three inches of snow when we arose at 0400.
At 0445, the power went out. With the aid of many battery-powered camping lights, lanterns, and the occasional flashlight, we went about morning ablutions, improvised breakfast, and a change in planned attire.
I held a pocket flashlight in my mouth while I cleared 5"+ of heavy, wet snow off of the car, and off we went. More or less on time, too.
06:25, snowing in earnest
Roads weren't bad, since the ground temp is still above freezing. The snow immediately turns to slush, with the obvious result of wet, sloppy driving conditions. Not too slick, though, except where slush builds up between lanes.
So, with the exception of the power outage (think too many leaves still on the trees + heavy, wet snow + power lines), it's a fine morning.
Given our forecast, those ground temps may not remain above freezing for much longer. Ah well, just part of the grand pageant comprising Alaska.
