Snow

For the Baltimore area we had quite a storm. The temperature was in the single digits for the area and we had about four inches of snow.

Saturday afternoon and evening Orthodox services were cancelled in many, if not most or even all churches in the area.  I did not dare venture outside, partly because of the wind and partly because of the temperature.

Sunday morning before going to church, I shoved the snow in front of my house and in front of the vacant house next door.  I then took the two buses to get to church.  I was hoping that I would see a cab so that I could take it instead, especially since I knew that I would have to walk three blocks after getting off the second bus and I did not know how safe walking would be.  It was not bad.

When I arrived at the church, Fr. John was already shoveling the front and he asked me to open the gate to the other side of the parking area.  The snow was over the top of my shoes. 

When we left church after services and lunch, I was surprised to see most of the sidewalks and streets clear of snow. 

In the evening Andrew took me to Forgiveness Vespers.  We left my house at 17:15.  When we arrived, I took the photographs below.
