Conceived During a Surprise Snowstorm?

Of course I don’t know for sure (eww if I did), but as a psuedo-amateur weather enthusiast, I came upon an article over at the WashingtonPost.com weather blog page that may have shed light on the time I was conceived to enter existence.  And sure there may be better worldly circumstances in which to be conceived, but few would surpass a massive surprise snowstorm no?


According to this report, there was a pretty significant surprise snow event that occurred in the D.C. Metro area on President's Day back in 1979.  They were expecting a few inches at most, but ended up getting walloped for a foot or two of snow.  Now I can’t think of a better time than a massive surprise snowstorm to cuddle up with the wifey.  Taking in consideration the typical 9 months is takes babies to incubate inside their host, I was born in early November that year…almost 9 months later from the snowstorm exactly lol.

Anyways, I was supposedly a “late” baby so that would push me to early Feb. late Jan. conception time period…   I don’t know why I thought about this…because yes it is slightly disturbing to think about now that I think about it more.  I guess I just found it interesting the date of the storm and my birth.

Lost my muse a time ago...lost motivation a time ago.  Sorry for the movie trailer delay.  Was working like a Cylon this past month.

God Bless Tim Tebow, but Eric Liddel Did It First

            This ESPN article manifests what truly drives Tim Tebow; and that drive comes from within and from “above”. 


But having proper perspective, having an eternal perspective in the face of our very temporal earthly existence isn’t something novel in modern sports, or even in the past few decades.  Famous Scottish Olympic runner and missionary Eric Liddell was running in the name of the Lord and keeping things in perspective 80 years ago.  

Check out this clip from the movie “Chariots of Fire” in which Eric really brings it home.

*To the apostle Paul’s credit…he was the first to compare faith to running a race, some 1900 years ago lol.
