More snow, and mosque & temple cont.
Schools are closed again today, and all three kids are happily playing in the mounds of snow in our yard. I was surprised schools were closed. It was really snowy and windy yesterday, but it had stopped before I went to bed and I assumed roads would be clear by this morning. Maybe they don't plow roads at night here? I really don't know. The whole snowplowing issue is bizarre. This is a small town, smaller than I have lived in before, but because it is rural there are miles of country roads outside the town center. I know the city has two snowplows, but I have never actually seen one of them. I know our street was plowed once at least, because the plow left a wall of snow in front of our driveway. The university never closes, but we live within walking distance so there's no problem for B getting to work.
Kristin in Abu Dhabi has some great photos and layouts of her visit to the Grand Mosque. I love her digital scrapbooking designs.
The temple dedication has been postponed to Sunday Feb. 10th, because of President Hinckley's funeral tomorrow. The cultural celebration will be next week, Feb. 9th. Hopefully I'll get some photos. I've gone to all the rehearsals with K, and it is a fun and moving tribute to the pioneers and local residents, and a celebration of the progress that has been made here over the years through their efforts.
