The Biggest Difference

We are currently hunkered down in New York... State, not City. We've been visiting with the members of one of the Baptist churches here, and it has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The people are friendly and warm. The towns are close-knit. So what's the biggest difference?

Well, it's currently 67 degrees. Yes. That's right. The low for tonight, get this, is 44 degrees. We may actually have to turn on the heat... in August. That isn't even normal for where we are. When we left the temperature was close to 90 in the heat of the day here, but just like Mobile, Al is known for bizarre stretches of heat in the winter, upstate New York is no stranger to cool breaks in the summer. It's a brave new world, my friends.

Now, if you think that the weather is just a detail, I should tell you that almost every conversation has included the forecast for this winter: frigid. It seems that the locals are a bit concerned for those of us who are native to the warm state of Alabama.

We'll find out on Sunday what happens next, and I'll be sure to share the next step of God's plan as soon as we are made aware. Until then, make sure to check the weather report before you travel.
