March 5th - Traveled back to Waterloo.

   (Mon.)              The weather has been really different lately. It was really warm the

                           two weeks we were in Mississippi.  Last week (our second week  

                           there) was when all those tornadoes were going through.  We thank

                           the Lord for His protection!

                           As we traveled to NC on Saturday the wind was blowing very cold. 

                           And the cold wind continued on Sunday.  We saw snow falling just

                           before 6:00 pm. It only snowed for around 10 minutes.

                           On Monday morning at 7:00 am there was a dark cloud in the

                           distance. It looked like a storm cloud. The sun was shining and the

                           air was warm.  Then by 7:30 it was snowing hard and sticking on the

                           ground. It was beautiful! 

                           As we left NC to travel home it was a mix of snow, rain and sleet. 

                           Farther up the road it was snowing hard on us and to the right of us the

                           sun was shinning bright with a blue sky and white puffy clouds.  We

                           begin to look for a "rainbow" in the snow.  When we saw the full bow

                           in the sky we decided it had to be a snowbow!  It was so beautiful!

                           The Lord is so good!!  We love Him and we thank Him for His beauty!
