Weather permitting

I think Fr. McGrath has been taken a bit aback by our Pacific Northwe(s)t winters. Sunday he announced that he'd told the Vestry he wasn't going to hold an Advent class this year because of the frequency with which he'd had to cancel in the past due to the weather.

I remember the big windstorm we had two years ago, with power being out days to weeks. Last year I recorded nothing in the blog, but then again I was away for a while and may have missed something. And it might have been in 2005 that Avondale Road because extremely treacherous with water over the sheet of ice on the road.

But Fr. McGrath relented and the class will go ahead, only three Wednesdays this year. This time the book will be Advent and Christmas: Wisdom from G.K. Chesterton, Advent and Christmas readings. (I don't know if we're signed up but will have to ask.) The class is on -- weather permitting!

    Every winter I've lived here so far, the weather has been called "unseasonal" by the local veterans. Snow, high winds, cold, flooding. But even a few snow flurries brings everything to a halt here!

    Yesterday, a bit of sun in the morning, and the family headed to the park: what a welcome respite to the pervasive darkness of this time of year!
