Having left the blistering cold weather of Great Falls, MT on the 25th of December 2016, we officially moved into our new residence on the 15th of January. Spending almost a month living in hotels and dealing with closing issues. Too say the least, it has been a frustrating and blessed time, all combined into one.
The weather here in Weiser, ID, has been a rarity according to the locals. The last time snow, ice, and freezing rain inundated this part of the country was almost 40 years ago. This year, almost every day has been non-stop snow, ice, or freezing rain combined with extremely low visibility fog.
Many of the homes and businesses here and in the surrounding areas have experienced roof crashes, septic backups, water line failures, fires, etc. It has not been pretty.
Check out this link about the bowling alley; and this link about some of the other happenings:
Thus far, our home and acreage has been spared and we can only thank the Lord for that! Here are a couple of pics of what our home looks like now, under an accumulation of 5+ feet of snow....
compared to what it normally would look like...(this is what we were expecting). Well, Jesus had other plans to welcome us and ensure that we truly appreciate what has been given.
"For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55:10-11
God is good, and all the time, God is Good!!
