Ay, oh, way to go (with more snow), Ohio

Yes, I know it’s still February, so I have no reasonable expectation of anything but winter weather right now. But the 2010-2011 winter seems to have started earlier and been harder than usual. We had lots of wind and rain here in Central Ohio last night (I admit that drifting off to sleep to the sound of the steady clatter of rain against the windows and the wind rushing through the pine trees outside our bedroom window is rather nice), though the rain turned to sleet, and then to snow, this morning. I’m glad I’m inside, warm and dry, sipping my morning coffee, and watching through my office window as everything starts turning white again. I actually do like the snow and wintry weather (I posted a few thoughts about that last fall, when the fall colors heralded the approach of Old Man Winter), but I confess that after endless weeks of gray, dreary weather, I’m looking forward to seeing some spring sunshine. A thought that plays on my mind a lot on days like this is “There will be only light and warmth and beauty in heaven.” On a day like today, the prospect of eternal, perfect, “heavenly weather” is more than a little appealing!

    Patrick,
    I had no idea we had a “star” here in central Oh. I live in Dublin
    and listen to you on St. Gabriel Radio frequently. You and Jimmy Akins are both are doing such great work!
    God bless you both!
    Catholic Answers is a great show. I always learn something new or hear of great books to read to help me grow in my faith journey.

    Patrick,
    You are lucky you didn’t have to go out and get cold and wet like I did. 315 is murder when it snows (or rains)…

    Why thank you kindly, Karen. I appreciate your kind words, and I’m delighted to know that you enjoy the “Open Line” show. I love hosting it.

    And Jeanne, I couldn’t agree with you more. Anytime I can avoid a rush-hour commute when the weather is bad, I do. Stay safe out there!
