First snow of the season



Got some snow this morning here in eastern Iowa.  It was coming down pretty good this morning but most of it didn't stick since the ground is still fairly warm.

Looks like the next few days the weather will be cold and windy before warming up a bit by Thursday. 

Mother Nature, couldn't you have waited until November before doing all this.

What is this s-n-o-w that you speak of? :kitty-wink:

It's in the 90s here today, but the heat index is running in reverse because of the low humidity, which makes it feel cooler.  We had a freak snowstorm back in February that dumped the equivalent of almost two years worth of snow on us in less than 24 hours. That's still only a single-digit number, but it did shut down the town for a couple of days.:laughing-rollingyellow:

      People who are dysfunctional (can't raise their kids) usually have difficulty holding steady jobs too. So they're likely to be terrible parents AND unable to hold a job.
      People in lower income groups are often involved with social services in other ways (food stamps, etc) and so it's easier to see neglect and abuse. Wealthy families can isolate more easily.
      In wealthy families, the parents often hold prominent positions in the community (doctor, rabbi, lawyer, etc) and social services find it more intimidating to challenge them, or they tend to give these parents the benefit of the doubt.
      But abuse and neglect certainly happens in wealthy families.  It's just easier to stay under the radar. 

      You’re funny I know plenty of people who get food stamps and social services isn’t close to being involved.

      Going back to my hiding place now and lurking again....

      If he is legit, I hope he’s able to get actual therapy. Getting feedback on your private journals from the internet I imagine will, in the end, be profoundly unhelpful. 

      Yes he has been through therapy. He and his wife both are surprisingly well spoken. I don't mean to sound like I am white knighting... but listening to him talk about the difference in who he was vs who he is now and the journey he took to get here warms the cockles of my very hardened and sinful heart (😂).

      Forward your email to the diocese.  They need to know what the priest is doing and saying.  I'm so sorry you encountered a jerk.  

      Depending on where the OP is, the diocese, the Bishop, will be all up into the priest and tell OP to "pound sand" and they'll pray for her eternal soul...seeing as how the Catholic Church believes that if you leave it, you'll roast in hell for eternity. 

      Now, before we get too far into the weeds here, let me quote the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 846-48, which—as is so often the case no matter the doctrine with the CCC—presents this teaching clearly and to the point under the heading: “Outside the Church there is no Salvation.”

      How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers? Re-formulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

      “Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it” (CCC here quotes The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, “Lumen Gentium,” 14, from the documents of Vatican II).

      @neuroticcat *shrug* of course he has lurked on FJ and Reddit. He admits to it when he started questioning the whole ideology and looking for answers. But I listened to EP 1 and 2 last night, to me it feels real. YMMV. 

      edit: I don't think he is building a platform. He specifically states this is a limited edition series and is using it mostly as a stream of consciousness form of therapy.
