Oh the Joys of Winter

Winter has taken its toll on the camp facilities which has kept John and his crew very busy. Snow removal has just been a small portion of the trials as we have had record amounts of snow this winter. Leaks, leaks and more leaks! Including a large break in a water main that has forced staff to move from one cabin to another. In our house alone, I have 4 different spots we have to keep buckets under and a carpet that continually and mysteriously becomes soaking wet (we believe it is pouring down the wall and coming out near the baseboard into the carpet). Then low and behold our storage "weatherport" collapsed under the weight of the snow. Three other families and ours are now in search of a new storage area, as our trailers do not hold much. However, we are praising God for the moisture we need to sustain us through the dry summers.

Water draining out after I drilled holes in our sagging kitchen ceiling.

For those of you that would like to see how snow gets into our bedroom. We actually don't have to worry about the snow so much now that the ice has filled the gap.
