Swamp cooler dust. It is getting warm enough that by late afternoon the house needs cooling, especially if I am going to turn on the oven. The first time the swamp cooler is turned on each spring, the house is filled with a white cloud -- kind of makes me think of the tabernacle being filled with the glory of the Lord, only he did not leave a holy residue on all the furniture!
Yesterday the girls washed the car; ironically their daddy was probably scraping ice off of his at the same time. The man of the house departed at noon on Sunday for Minnesota. After 32 hours of driving, one hour of sleep, and a quick stop for breakfast with our pastor in Kansas, he made it to his brother's place south of the Twin Cities. We are hearing reports of 8' drifts and 15' mountains of plowed snow. I sure am glad THIS was a record snowfall year. Next year isn't likely to be one, especially with global warming. Right, Jane? :)
