Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass- it is about learning to dance in the rain.

Tuesday, January 15, 2008


It was a sort of joke around our church for several years. We'd have a missions conference in January, and that week the weather would be icy cold, stormy, tons of snow, the worst weather of the month.

This weekend, we have a friend arriving from Houston to speak at services this weekend. We are having service Friday evening, Saturday evening and Sunday morning. (See the red highlights for predicted temperatures here!!) When the word bitter is used in a weather forecast, you know it isn't good.

Now the Houston forecast is fairly cold...for Houston, the place that invented hot and sultry. I hope Pastor Steve has not seen the weather forecast for Chicago!!!


FRIDAY - Considerable cloudiness. A 30 percent chance of light snow in the afternoon. Turning sharply colder. Highs in the lower 20s.

FRIDAY NIGHT - Partly cloudy. Scattered flurries. Very cold. Lows zero to 4 above.

SATURDAY - Partly sunny. Very cold. Highs 3 to 7 above.

SATURDAY NIGHT - Partly cloudy in the evening then becoming mostly clear. Bitterly cold. Lows 1 to 5 below.

SUNDAY - Mostly sunny in the morning then becoming partly cloudy. Highs 9 to 13 above.

SUNDAY NIGHT - Partly cloudy. Lows 3 to 7 above.


Friday: A 30 percent chance of rain, mainly after noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 53.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 35.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 57.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 39.

Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high near 57.

Sunday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 48.

Oh yeah, gotta love that midwest weather! I miss it. Grew up in the midwest, we're east coast now which really isn't that much different.

PJ, thanks for commenting on my blog!

I live in Rockford, obviously not too far from you, and I'm bracing myself for the weekend cold! I'm glad I don't have to go to work Saturday morning.

OK, just so you know, here in Minnesota it's -18. I think anything colder than freezing is just plain too cold and doesn't deserve a number, but it still freaks me out that it can get THAT cold! Brrrr!

Okay, Linda, you win the cold competition! I willingly concede! This morning my car thermometer said -3. (Then there was wind chill, etc.!) But -18 is to cold for me to think about!!!
