Prayers of praise for a no snow week.

After my deciding to not attempt driving to Sheridan last week, I was disappointed in that I was letting my guys down, as many have shared Friday is t3h day of the week they look forward to. But, God lifted the disappointment when I came to know that after I called Sheridan last and was told they were in full operation, it went on lockdown.

To Him be the glory!
