The Weather Outside is Frightful...

Right now I'm trying not to be bummed. I'm looking outside my bedroom window at a gorgeous winter wonderland of trees dusted with fresh powdery snow. Which would be lovely... except... the a cappella choir that I co-direct was supposed to sing in a concert at the Grotto tonight, but the concert is canceled. The Grotto is closed because of snow so the concert is off. This is after we already canceled our earlier concert at Zoolights.

This morning our ward choir had a rehearsal for our Christmas program. The rehearsal went great- we have an amazing guest flute player, we are really well-prepared and it will be awesome... except that it might not happen. The prospects are pretty grim, actually. Both of the wards in our town that meet in the morning in are canceled and ours, which meets in the afternoon, might also be canceled- for the second week in a row- if the weather is bad tomorrow. And the snow keeps coming down....

It really is beautiful and I wish I could sit back and enjoy it instead of worrying if all of that work and planning is going to go to waste-- for the second day in a row. I'm 2 for 3 so far with performances getting canceled this weekend. Can it just stop snowing long enough for us to get to church and do the ward choir program? Pretty please?

I'm sorry!

Another friend of mine in Oregon just posted on FB that her ward is definitely cancelled tomorrow.

Maybe you could perform some of them next week anyway, after working so hard?

Yeah! Our weather is crazy! Or maybe the city- the whole place shuts down for a half inch of snow-now it's much more than that, but... I guess we don't know what to do with anything other than rain!! Good luck tomorrow- I know the flute player is amazing!!

I've been thinking about that very thing this weekend. And it doesn't look good--we were out this morning on a family walk, and it's pretty icy. I'd hate to think of what it is like in the hills...

Maybe, like Jacki said, they would let us sing next week? I would feel so bereft if I couldn't sing Christmas carols with the ward this year!

That is such a bummer! I was completely prepared to walk to church with my 4 kids if that what it took today. I was really bummed when it was canceled. I know how much work a lot of people do for the Christmas programs. I hope they get to present them next week.
