I'm a day late with this, but Christmas is a frantic time when you are involved with a church. So Merry Christmas to all. I hope that all have been blessed in the past year as much as we in Howard_T's household. Our son is here visiting for the weekend, and it's always a joy to see him. We had some ice on the roads this morning, and the priest who was scheduled to work our Eucharist couldn't get here. I was on duty as Verger, so rather than disappoint those faithful who showed up, I led a service of Morning Prayer. If you really want to see me in action, look for Church of the Good Shepherd, Nashua, NH, and find the 9:00 AM service of December 26, 2021. Warning! It ain't pretty. So enjoy the holidays, root for your teams, and may all be well with you.

I saw the situation with the icy roads and the big pileup on the Everett Turnpike. Glad you were able to get around safely and fulfill your duties.

If you have the chance, check out the scene yesterday on US 395 just south of Reno. Christmas night, we drove from my parents' house in North Lake Tahoe back home to south Reno. Usually a 45-minute trip. Took us 2 hours, all of it white-knuckle in blinding snow with 90MPH+ winds. We came north on this stretch of 395 with visibility at about 10 feet and gusts strong enough to move my wife's Hyundai Palisade laterally on the slick road. Never again, my friends.
