BAD storms last evening and night. Lots of people around here still without power, and some may not have power back until nearly midnight tonight. Might possibly get all the way up to 71° today. Might. Possibly. All of 63° here now.
We were scheduled to take an hour drive to see one of my oldest friends in the whole world. But she's been sick all night and all morning, the car continues to overheat, and I'm not all that chipper myself. So I just called his phone and left word we're not up to it, and left a message on his wife's FaceBook messenger.
Wife's under a cat and two blankets now, which sounds pretty sensible to me. Might do likewise in a bit. We shall see.
So this will be brief. There are some things heavy on my mind, several of them yet unresolved, others just giving an unclear picture. More later, perhaps.
Haven't gotten the body count yet from last night's Friday Night Frivolities. Usually pretty high. The preferences for use of vast quantities of alcohol, various "recreational pharmaceuticals", etc,. combined with the "drunk driving olympics", and preferences for settling fairly trivial disagreements with various means of deadly force, lead to bad ends. It would be foolish to expect otherwise, but it always seems to surprise some.
Our reading in the Old Testament is Psalms 75, 76, and 77
The reading in the New Testament today is chapter 6 in the Epistle to the Romans.
As is the case throughout this epistle, we could, and should, chew over every word in every verse, and not exhaust it. This is Good Stuff.
