Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful
Folks living outside the South laugh at the snow dusting we received earlier this week, and I understand why. What’s an inch or two compared to several feet? Nothing. But any amount of snow in November is rare for my area, especially if it begins as rain and the temperature dips into the teens. Within hours, sparkling icicles decorated houses and trees like twinkling Christmas lights. Beautiful, unless you have to spend a long time outside. If the need arises, be sure and apply something else called rare—knowledge. Proverbs 20:15 says, “There is gold, and an abundance of rubies; but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel.” Like when a mother reminds her young children to dress warmly and wear their caps and mittens . . . as mine did the other day. You’re never too old for good advice.
What’s your snow tolerance on a scale from 1 (hate it) to 10 (love it)?
