We're having unusually cold weather this week. Yesterday we had gale force winds, rain, hail, sleet and in some areas there was even snow. I got up in the morning and sent my husband and kids off into the world, only to have my husband and Jenna return home a while later. Jenna's school was closed because of flooding and bad weather. There was ice (or maybe snow) on the ground nearby too.

Today the weather is better. The winds have died down and the sky is blue but it's still bitter cold outside. We have electricity today - but it's so weak that the heaters aren't heating and the microwave oven isn't microwaving. I'm wearing a sweater over my pajamas and thick socks with my Crocs. I look hideous, but warm. It's supposed to be cold for the next few days.
Good news: In my last post I reported about my daughter's friend and her neighbour who had gone missing - kidnapped without a trace. Finally, after nearly two weeks the girls were able to call home. They've been recovered and were returned home the day before yesterday. I still don't know all the details, but from what I understand, the crime was politically/tribally motivated. What kind of sick people would do such a thing? Barbaric! Thank God the girls are safe and well. I hope and pray nothing like this ever happens again.
