Today as I was heating up my lunch (leftovers) in the microwave at the church I noticed this guy, one of our local marmot herd, sunning himself on the ladder that is leaning against the fence behind the kitchen. It lives there...the ladder that is...since the heating and air conditioning units for the church are up on the roof above the kitchen and can only be accessed by climbing. Mr. or Mrs Marmot must find the aluminium ladder to be a little warmer spot to take a siesta than the cool ground. You may notice from the picture that there isn't all that much sun. Today the sun has been playing tag with the clouds, shining about 50% of the time. It has been a cool day, we will only end up around 70 degrees this afternoon, and tomorrow should be better with sunny skies and middle 70s. Summer weather will be setting in next week with temperatures climbing through the 80s to near 90 degrees by the end of the week, and dry sunny weather throughout.
Tomorrow is Independence Day, the 4th of July. Stop by the church, St. John's Lutheran on US 195 in south Spokane, for our service at 9:30am. We will be mixing in some 4th of July themes, and some good ol' fashioned fire and brimstone preaching! We'll save a seat for you!!!
