Arthur here - Saturday morning we had a heavy frost. It got down to 27 degrees. That is the coldest I ever remember it in June. We have been averaging 20 degrees colder than normal this spring. The weather continually goes in cycles and patterns and there is nothing to be alarmed about for cold or heat. It is going to get hot on this earth when God's final judgement comes. For now, we can be thankful for the nice variety God has chosen to send us.

About 5:15 AM this morning the phone rang. The kids had left earlier to go to Grand Forks for the second week of CYIA training. It was Naomi informing us that Isaac hit a deer not too far from our house and he wanted dad to go get it. (yes, they're okay - it only took a front light out) Being the thrifty man that he is, Arthur got out of bed, made the required call to the Highway Patrol, and went to collect our road kill. While it's cold out, it's not quite cold enough to let a deer hang so he cut it up right away, gave away some, and I decided to get some ready for supper tonight to share with the J. family.
