Here in the Denver area, we are in the middle of what may turn out to be the heaviest snow storm of the entire winter. We’ve got drifts 2-3′ deep on our back deck, and our driveway (which is about 150-200 yards long) is covered with thick, heavy, wet snow (the worst kind to use a snow blower on). And it’s still coming down.
Stake Conference for our stake is scheduled for this weekend, and there was to be a Stake Priesthood Leadership meeting at 4 pm today, with the Adult Session of Stake Conference at 7 pm. Both have been canceled. How do I know? Well, so far, Sandra and I have received five (5) phone calls to that effect:
- from the Stake Choir director (Sandra and I are in the Stake Choir)
- from the Stake Music director (I’m also in a group of men who were to sing at the Priesthood session)
- from our ward executive secretary (I’m a member of the PEC)
- from a member of my high priests group leadership (I’m a high priest)
- from one of my wife’s visiting teaching supervisor (My wife is in the Relief Society, natch)
From a communications network point of view, the redundancy is very impressive; I strongly suspect that everyone in our ward who can be reached by phone and who is likely to have attended these meetings has indeed been contacted. My impulse after the first call was to phone my own home teaching families, but since they are (a) the bishop and (b) the ward clerk, I figured they already knew and were busy with their own calls. ..bruce..
