Our Snow Statstics...So Far

We had another round of snow. It snowed off and on from Friday through Tuesday morning. This time we totaled at 10 inches. Which makes our grand total for this winter 52 inches. That's right, people, 4 feet 4 inches of snow!! (Our average is 18.9 inches.)

The record was set the winter of 1911-1912 with 72 inches. Someone got really excited when I told them that and said, "We can SO beat that!" I don't really want another 20 inches of snow so we can beat that record. I guess there'd at least be some sort of victory in that.

There are so many great verses about snow in the Bible. Here are a few of my favorites:

Psalm 51:7
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

Isaiah 1:18
"Come now, let us reason together,"
says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson, "

Another great passage, actually it's one of my favorites, is Job 38. God is reprimanding Job and God even uses some sarcasm in this passage. It's great!! God speaks of His power. How He controls the earth and what happens to it. How He has storehouses of snow and hail (vs. 22). It's a great passage about God's power and His sovereignty.

And Psalm 148 is just a great Psalm about all the earth, the heavens, the animals and the people praising God. Beautiful!!

Psalm 148
Praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD from the heavens,
praise him in the heights above.

Praise him, all his angels,
praise him, all his heavenly hosts.

Praise him, sun and moon,
praise him, all you shining stars.

Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for he commanded and they were created.

He set them in place for ever and ever;
he gave a decree that will never pass away.

Praise the LORD from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,

lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,

you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,

wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and flying birds,

kings of the earth and all nations,
you princes and all rulers on earth,

young men and maidens,
old men and children.

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.

He has raised up for his people a horn, b]">[b]
the praise of all his saints,
of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the LORD.

Hope you're enjoying the weather wherever you are!!
