My county has officially issued a “DISASTER DECLARATION.” It’s a disaster here in Glenside, PA. Snowpocalypse, winterzilla, snowmageddon, polar vortexathon–call it what you will. Trees are down, roads are blocked, and most homes are out of power. Fortunately my power is back on, but earlier this week when I was power-less, I drove (slowly and carefully) to a nearby Starbucks on a quest for coffee and wifi. I pulled into the small parking lot where cars seemed to be entering in and out. I’m kicking myself for not snapping a pic of what I saw next. I drove by the front door, peering in for signs of life, when my eye caught a piece of paper taped to the front door. In large black lettering it just said one word: “nope.” Though I was disappointed for the lack of java in my life, I couldn’t help but appreciate the humor.
Glenside is on the mend, and I hear that most places should be up and running again by Sunday at the latest. Meanwhile, we’re due another storm this weekend. And to that I say:
“Weather” by anonymous
Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!
By God’s sweet grace, indeed, we’ll weather the weather.
Also, here’s a cute cuddly lion video to make the winterz better. I think this would be both the best and scariest greeting ever.
