Snow Driving

We had a blizzard a little over a week ago. It snowed all day. We only got about six inches but the wind blew so I wound up with a good fifteen inches on my driveway. We went home about noon. Traffic was going thirty to forty miles an hour, closer to thirty most of the time. It took me twice as long as it usually does to get home.

By Saturday the roads were clear and everybody got out to take care of business and to escape from their homes. It was crazy. Everybody was going way fast. They were desperate to get around me. It was like they were trying to catch up. Like ‘You will live eternally in heaven in the presence of God if you believe Jesus is the Son of God, He died for your sins, and He rose on the third day


You average sixty miles per hour over the full span of your driving career.’l

That’s it. Those people were trying to get their average back up.

I’m thankful that the only qualification is that first one because at my age I would have to drive a rocket sled to change my average even a little bit.


About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
