The week of January and in typical Virginia fashion, this month has been the extremes of cold and hot. Last week was coldest weather we’ve had this season. There was some snow, but the cold arctic mass meant light snow. And this week we are supposed to be close to 60 degrees. The daffodils will force themselves a little higher. Of course, we could have another snowstorm. It doesn’t usually happen, but it does happen in February.

The weather makes be especially appreciate the staff for the physical plant—maintenance, grounds, remodeling, managing contractors, and the list goes on. And then is snows, and they all ready and take turns in insuring safety and use of this large physical plant. So, there last Friday night was David Mutscheller shoveling the newly fallen snow so that the Reformed Institute meeting at VTS would have no problems. He was in a good mood, and this is generally shared by the physical plant staff as a whole. Still, as January ends, I hope we’ve had our nice, little bit of snow.
