We had expected to spend Friday night in Lansdale, PA with our friends Sam & Alice Rittenhouse. That turned into three nights when a snow storm dumped about 12 inches of snow in Lansdale. It snowed from Saturday morning through early Sunday morning.
Margaret took a number of photos after the storm. You can view a slide show of them here.
The storm dumped twice as much snow at our home in Smyrna, De – 24 inches. Margaret stayed in touch by phone with our neighbor who kept telling us, “Don’t come back yet.” It was Monday before the streets in our development where plowed but there was still a lot of snow between the road and our front door. Monday afternoon we decided to go home after our friend Jim Tracy offered to meet us there and help us get into the house. On the way back we got a call that two other young men from church were also going to come by and help did us out.
Jim brought his dog Baby Girl with him. Margaret helped out by holding her leash. That worked fine until Baby Girl decided she wanted to explore the show drifts and Margaret tried to keep up with her.
Jim, Corey and Tony finishing the last bit up to our front door.
What wonderful unplanned blessings we have enjoyed from our Father during this event: an extended time of fellowship with good friends, Sam & Alice; and the Lord sending us three young men from church at just the right time so we could get back into our home. God is so good to us. PTL!
In His name,
Chaplain Sam Houchins
