Church in the blizzard.
Cindy, a Unitarian Universalist director of religious education, says the thought occurred to her:
I almost slept on the floor of my office Saturday night in order to ensure that I’d be at the UU [church] to open Sunday morning. Honestly, I can remember thinking that it was the most logical choice. . . . I somehow felt that my choices were to be shoveled out at 7 am, (impossible due to my recently herniated back,) to try to bust my car through the snow drift that is perpetually at the end of our driveway, (highly unlikely given the plow patterns of our town) or to sleep over in my office.
Not Going To Work didn’t occur to me. . . .
I probably would have done it too, except my partner started singing that old Dolly Parton song, D-i-v-o-r-c-e.
Ah, that'll do it! Meanwhile, the Boston Globe reported this morning that one Episcopal church on Beacon Hill did hold its Sunday-morning service — but only the priest (who lives next door) and one parishioner showed up.
