So, what do four missionaries do when the 'big storm' hits and there is twelve inches of snow that is blowing around at thirty mph and a wind chill factor of -45 degrees and you're forbidden to leave your house without having your car impounded and charged $100 to get it out?! Well, you bring the Elders over to your house so they can keep warm and safe and you spend 61 hours together shoveling, checking to make sure it is really as cold as they say it is, eating, and, of course, doing real missionary stuff like studying, reading, planning and calling the members to make sure they are all OK.
|The bacon hot chocolate was not that good:(|
|Yes, Elder Phillips, it really WAS that cold!!!!!!|
|Shoveling out a member's driveway (after the driving ban was lifted).|
|I think our favorite diversion was 'making snow'. You take some super hot water outside and throw it up in the air and - wow - instant snow. Of course, the temperature must be waaaaaaay below zero. This kept the Elders busy for a lonnnnnng time:)|
