It is before 8:00am, and I am already at church as I write this. We are having an impromptu Men's Breakfast this morning so that we can eat and test drive the Bible study that I wrote for my seminary class. It is on Jeremiah 1:4-10 & 17-19 if you want to follow along at home. We'll be starting in about an hour.
The sun is shining this morning and the temperature is about 40 degrees. It is still rather windy, but not as bad as yesterday. On Friday the peak gust was 40 miles per hour. Today will turn cloudier as the day go on, and a few showers are likely by evening. Snow is going to be a big deal in the mountain areas today and tonight, with a Winter Storm Warning at elevations above 3,500 to 4,000 feet. There will be as much as a foot in the Idaho Panhandle up around 5,000 feet and higher. Today's high temperature will be in the upper 40s, and Sunday is looking mostly cloudy and cool with a few showers. We will probably only reach the mid 40s tomorrow. Monday should be a day of rest, at least weather-wise, with some sun and dry conditions. Then the rain and mountain snow will return again for Tuesday through the end of the week, on an on and off basis.
