Making it through December

Get me through December
A promise I’ll remember
Get me through December
So I can start again

Lyrics by Allison Krauss

Our weather forecasters are trying to decide whether tomorrow we will be faced with heavy rain, heavy snow, or neither.  They all seem agreed that temperatures will be securely below freezing.  Our firewood which ordinarily would last into April will be gone by the end of January,  the local supplier has no seasoned logs left, and the price of heating oil has doubled in the last month.

But so far none of our water pipes have frozen.  Or at least haven’t burst.

Still, Lord, just a small touch of global warming wouldn’t be too bad, would it?


  1. Is that a prayer I hear? 🙂 Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year!

    • Oh Donna, thank you. And a very happy Christmas and New Year to you too. Oh yes, and healthy too.

      Well, whatever some of the mullahs and various fundamentalists may say, I imagine that neither of us think prayer is a very effective weather-control mechanism. But I’m sure it won’t make it worse. The important thing is to find the inner resources required to survive the dark and cold, isn’t it? Prayer might help on that score. Though I guess praying for a spot of global warming is really cheating.
