Let it Snow

Don't you wish you had little snow to cool you off? That's what we got here over night and the local people are so excited about it! Some went out and played in it and made snowballs to save in their freezers. One person said this hasn't occurred in 30 years (but then she might have a poor memory like I do).I'll send you some pictures of the dusting! The building is the area office and the second and third windows from the left is our offfice, too bad we weren't looking out the window when the picture was taken.We have been a little frustrated in trying to get the food supplies sent to Lesotho. We can't get anyone on the phone and nobody is sending us emails in response to ours. The disaster management director is the toughest one to make contact with. Aarrgh! We just had a meeting with the man who will be acquiring the food, boxing it and shipping it into Lesotho. He told us that there is a 'bit of unrest' there in the capitol over some dispute with the President. So maybe that is why no one seems to be around to answer phones and emails but we'll keep trying. Any word on Grandma's computer? We keep waiting for a letter from her too. Glad you had a fun day in Vegas buying things with other people's money. Better go get finished because we are heading to the temple at 4. Sending our love and hugs.

Bing Crosby would be so proud. You know "White Christmas" was written in the month of July, maybe he was in S. Africa!

Mom's computer will be set up
tonight...we had to wait until Tony had time to do it. Sorry to all who have been anxiously waiting. Poor mom has been very patient with us...(Ashton is in winter too...but I don't get to here from him until next week!)

So Elder and Sister Rix brought the "Greatest Snow on Earth" to So. Africa. Way to get attention there, Missionaries. Tell us...do you have a hankering to go Christmas shopping now?
