Re: winters back......and prayer request

Wow-  sounds like you all need to batten down the hatches out there in 
the middle of the US.  I guess all the rain, rain, rain we got yesterday 
went to you all and turned to snow.  I hope your husband gets home OK.  
And your friend is definitely in my thoughts- this has just been the 
year for double whammys in life I guess.
On a positive note-  my husband has a job interview today that went 
well- they are doing a second round of interviews on Thursday and will 
call him tomorrow to tell him if he made the cut to come in for that!  
Keep your fingers crossed.
