Here in Ottawa, we got dumped on again this past weekend. We got over 50 cm. We didn’t drive to Mass this morning. We took the sled.
So far this year we’ve gotten 13 FEET of the white stuff.
In the story of the Exodus, the ancient Jews were complaining about the manna from heaven. It was getting tiring. They wanted meat and were becoming complacent. So Moses relayed the message to God and God sent them His answer. This is how the story goes…
10 Moses heard the people of every family wailing, each at the entrance to his tent. The LORD became exceedingly angry, and Moses was troubled. 11 He asked the LORD, “Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? 12 Did I conceive all these people? Did I give them birth? Why do you tell me to carry them in my arms, as a nurse carries an infant, to the land you promised on oath to their forefathers? 13 Where can I get meat for all these people? They keep wailing to me, ‘Give us meat to eat!’ 14 I cannot carry all these people by myself; the burden is too heavy for me. 15 If this is how you are going to treat me, put me to death right now—if I have found favor in your eyes—and do not let me face my own ruin.”
31 Now a wind went out from the LORD and drove quail in from the sea. It brought them down all around the camp to about three feet above the ground, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. 32 All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp. 33 But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the LORD burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. 34 Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had craved other food.
The same thing is happening here with the fraud of Global Warming except in reverse order. God has a sense of humour about our new found religion and has provided an appropriate response.
I’ve joked with my wife that our snowblower pictured below is probably the most important appliance after the toilet this winter.
Ain’t she a beaut? This here is one of the top models of snowblowers, folks. It’s an Ariens.
We’ve gotten so much snow over the past few days that the shooter which is about at 150 degree angle cannot make it over the snow wall on the side of the driveway anymore. It’s been a brutal winter.
