of a white Easter?!?
I guess it is only fair that after a "green" Christmas there be a foot or so of snow (and falling) outside right now. Unless there is a last minute heat wave, there will be quite a bit of snow on the ground for Easter.
The lady a few houses down from us still plans on having an Easter Egg Hunt this afternoon. She said that if kids can go tobogganing and sledding they can hunt Easter Eggs. That, and she already had the eggs made up and didn't want that effort to go to waste. She's "hidden" some of them by hanging them on a tree where they might actually be found.
I've been out shoveling twice this morning, and will have to go out again. Apparently, some of the highways were closed this morning because of traffic. I know my street didn't look very well-plowed this morning (I live on a "main road" that is plowed... or at least should be).
Today therefore should be interesting. I'm planning on going to the Easter Basket Blessing at my parish this afternoon. Then we're all going to the Vigil Mass this evening. Mary is singing in the choir and I have the 3rd reading about the parting of the red sea. At least this way we won't have to worry about shoveling tomorrow morning to get to Mass. Those are the crowded Masses (there is an overflow Mass in the gym that starts 15 min after the one in the church) because they are more normal length. The Vigil is considerably longer but, in my opinion, it doesn't feel as long as it is.
A Happy and Blessed Easter to you all!
