This morning, sun shining, -3 degrees, we received our first flood gage reading that tells us we're below flood stage. But we're still "flooded" in. The road is covered with huge ice ruts, allowing for trucks to get in and out but too scary for people like us who get stuck even when there are no icy ruts. Hopefully we'll be "plowed" out today (scooped out with a front-end loader).

While flooded in, John has been arranging music for the 18 member Jubal Brass ensemble that he directs; I've been working on my church history text, and John's finished reading to me "Crazy for God" by Frank Schaeffer. For anyone who knew of the late great "saint" Francis Schaeffer, this will be a fascinating eye-opener. His parents were not just boarder-line insane; they were certifiable. And he's very open about how the sins of the father were passed down to him. I recommend the book.
