FCS-Ian sent an email to the listserv last night:
Subject: Thursday morning prayer - 7:00

Come rain or SNOW or sleet or cold, we will still gather at 7:00 for morning prayer, in the chapel.

Join us for warmth of body and spirit.

Peace,
Ian
As if there were ever any doubt.

When I left the house around 6:30 this morning, there was maybe an inch of snow on the porch, not bad at all... a bit more on the steps... and then I reached the sidewalk and yeah, probably six inches or so. (I felt sort of like I should have been a good citizen and shoveled, but I didn't even remember to set my early-for-morning-prayer alarm last night, so I was definitely not thinking ahead.) Our street had been plowed -- so when I went to move into the street, I got to go through a pile of snow about up to my knees. I had thought wet, heavy snow was predicted, but this felt like fairly light snow (and the snowdrifts were clearly windblown in parts) -- which meant I wasn't getting much resistance/leverage in surmounting the snow drift, but oh well.

Tufts is back in session, so the sidewalks for much of my walk were actually cleared, but I opted to walk in the road anyway, as it was easier and there was almost no traffic.

Ian had shoveled a (narrow-ish) path from the side door (the one closest to the chapel) out to the street -- and after service was going to shovel more (both at the church and at his own house). \o/ He really enjoys shoveling (gives him a feeling of accomplishment) and said it only took him about 10 minutes to shovel that path.
