Snow Day - Prayer Day

A 'blizzard' hit Beaumont, TX. Here's what it looked like from our apartment patio at 1:00 A.M. ->

Later during the morning it looked like this. Every one I know got up during the wee hours to see the snow. Nature's beauty brought laughter and fun . . . and tears too.
A friend of ours was in a horrible accident and had to be air-lifted to Hermann Hospital in Houston. Please pray for him. His name is Alvaro Garcia. Thanks.

You all got a bit more snow in Beaumont than we did in Lake Charles. I heard from friends in Baton Rouge and they got more there too. How does that happen?

The snow was nice to see once - since I have decided I hate cold weather and may never travel where it snows for real.

My morning of snow - was not good. I'm never really awake before coffee. And I was working. So my aunt (works with me at the opposite shift) called me outside when our shifts changed and big dummy that I am, I went outside in scrubs with no jacket - she got me with a snow ball right in the face - relatives!! lol If I get sick someone is in trouble.

I'm sorry about your friend. I'll keep him in my prayers also.

So sorry about your friend, Jess. Hope he's better.

I am so jealous about the snow. They got it in Lufkin, but it didn't quite make it here. Boo Hoo!
