Weather, Bishops and uncertainty.

We have an amazingly busy weekend planned. The weatherman is guessing that we are in for a very big chance of snow and, for this area, a significant amount. The Bishop is in the area visiting all the area OCA Churches. Today he is in Seattle celebrating at St. Spiridons for their Feast Day. Later he heads up to Port Townsend for an evening vigil and Divine Liturgy in the morning for St. Herman's Feast. And then he heads back down to Poulsbo to be with us Saturday evening and Sunday. On Sunday, Rdr. James is scheduled to be ordained as a Subdeacon and another man at Church will be tonsured a Reader. We expect lots of friends to visit but now I'm not sure if that will all happen.
Why?

Winter Storm Warning

I'll highlight one sentence....
A WIDE RANGE OF SNOW AMOUNTS
ARE POSSIBLE WILL SOME LOCATIONS IN THE WARNING AREA GETTING
LITTLE IF ANY SNOW WHILE IN THE CONVERGENCE ZONE AS WELL AS OVER
THE KITSAP PENINSULA AS MUCH AS SIX INCHES OF SNOW IS POSSIBLE BY
SATURDAY MORNING.
What makes this even more interesting is the temps aren't suppose to warm up. So if it snows it will not be going anywhere anytime soon. And around here we aren't prepared for that. More snow scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, but just a little. Most likely everything will work out just fine because they are NEVER right! But it puts a little anxiety into my weekend.

I try to remember the words of Mother Raphaela...."God is in control of the universe! Give it all to Him."

ADDENDUM: Warnings have disappeared, sounds like things should be fine for the busy weekend. Another chance at some snow will be later this week...we aren't suppose to warm up at all this week.

Sounds like a busy but wonderful weekend planned. I love the snow - definitely try to enjoy it! :-)

Amen, that does tie in with what Mother Raphaela said.

I will try to make it, but I won't make my final decision until Sunday morning.

Stay safe and warm, all of you. And, do you have my phone number in case you need to reach me?

I hope everyone is safe in their travels. Although it may prevent some visitors from coming, I'm sure you'll love the beautiful snow!
