Just a little humor, I really think Utah is a beautiful state.
In continuation of my thread "my brother rebuked me", I came home from work tonight, and my wife had invited in another set of Elders! They claimed it had nothing to do with the previous Elders that were in my home. I was straight home from work and sober as a judge. I sat down with them, I didn't get into specifics, but I let them know I didn't appreciate the last two Elders ratting me out to the Sunday morning gossip club in the bishop's office. I told them all the cookies and jello won't change my mind. Also, I told them that the church forbids me to ask certain questions in church so I don't go. I confirmed to them they are welcome to come over, but what is said in my house stays in my house.
They ended up inviting my daughters to the wednesday night youth activity. I said that I don't mind my kids going to church or talking to the church members about religion, because I encourage my kids to question and learn from all things. Just pass on the kool aid. Seriously, my daughters are just too smart for that garbage. Their catholic friend who was fanatic is now going through her faith crisis. Her mother wants to talk to my wife. I said to my wife, careful, I feel some finger pointing coming on. LOL
I don't know, but I remember getting off my mission and traveling to YBU w/ my new bride in a Honda Accord - we thought we wondered if we would make it that . Never seen wind like that except at General Conference from those old windbags.
Many times I have made that suicidal trek from Denver to SLC through I-80 in the dead of winter. You can't see past your windshield wipers in a whiteout. Arlington Pass, Elk Mountain, eeewwwww I can feel the chill already, it hurts burrrrrrrr! I am not looking forward to winter.
and I came back to Utah once a month. Once you are in the midst of those storms, there is no turning back. No lines on the roads, everyone just kind of creeping along. A semi almost jack-knifed in front of me and I saw several that had and were off the road. I saw a highway patrolman off the road. It took FOREVER to get there. I don't think I've ever been so afraid while driving than then.
