The weather outside is frightful

but the fire is so delightful and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Okay so that’s a nice song and all but since it’s Sunday it doesn’t really fit. It’s so cold here….how cold you ask. Well it’s -8 degrees Fahrenheit, -22 Celsius. Talk about cold. It’s so cold there’s no chance our diesel van is gonna start without some major help. Bro. Rich (the national pastor) called this morning and said that out of all Croatia our town was the coldest. Not counting the feet of snow from yesterday, it’s cold!

We haven’t got this much snow for at least 6 years. Before we came to Croatia they had this much snow every year but we hot blooded Texans ruined it for them.

Hannah is 12 and she’s up to her knees in the snow, it is awesome! So here are just a few pics of our glorious snow! Sorry Traci, I know you wish you were here.

kids playing last night
look at all the snow collected on the table.

driving down the road yesterday, good thing we have all-season tire, plus Croats are very good at driving in snow so I didn’t see any accidents yesterday. In Texas there would have been multiple car pile-ups all over the place.

On more thing before I publish this post. We’ve all been so bummed out about getting the snow now and not at Christmas. The forecast has been calling for a warm Christmas and it looked like there was no chance for a white Christmas but this morning I looked at out local weather that is actually posted from Croatia and unlike most weather forecasts ours is usually right. So look down there at Saturday and you’ll see they are calling for snow, we’ll there’s a good chance that could come earlier so maybe, just maybe we’ll have a white Christmas. I sure hope so.


  1. I’ve heard that! In fact, a colleague’s son got hired with a math degree. I don’t want to move though. I have a really good living situation set up Click
