Weird Week

And it is getting weirder.

I’m not sure what it is about the Willamette Valley of Oregon, but just about any snow or ice causes things to go haywire. School has been out all week despite the fact that most areas around Portland have gotten less than 4 inches of snow all week. At Sunset, we close our offices when the schools are closed. So therefore…I haven’t gone into the office at all because they are closed. Luckily I am able to get a decent amount of work done from home.

With no school because I finished last Friday and less work than normal, it has honestly been a pretty boring week for me.

The problem is this bad weather isn’t going away for us. More ice and below freezing weather Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. And then another snow and ice storm is supposed to hit on Saturday night and Sunday. It could very well close most churches on Sunday.

I guess time will tell with what happens. Going into next week the cold weather might not leave us until Christmas day. That could threaten what churches have planned for Christmas Eve. Weird…

I pass the time by walking in the snow, watching movies, reading books, sleeping in and taking afternoon naps, and driving in the snow (because it is fun!).

If you are from around here…what are you doing with all the extra time?

If you aren’t from around here…how much snow is needed to close school?

(For me, growing up in Minnesota, it took 2 feet of snow before they closed school.)
