We received 3.8 inches of snow today.  Normally just snow would not be too treacherous, but for a tour bus in the Bentonville and Cave Springs area, it became a huge inconvenience.

The Florida State University’s track team’s tour bus slid off the road into a ditch on Highway 112 and Gator Road in Cave Springs, a few miles from where I live. They were on their way back to Northwest Arkansas regional airport to fly back to Tallahassee after competing in this weekend’s Razorback Invitational track and field meet at the University of Arkansas. The 47 students, coaches, and support staff were safely removed and relocated to a nearby elementary school.

That road has many twists and turns and can be difficult to navigate even on a rainy day. I am thankful to hear no one was injured, but they may have missed their flight home.

Job:6:15-16 [15] My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away; [16] Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid: speaks of the deceitfulness of friends who are like the places which are dark with ice, and where the snow hides itself. So, watch out for deceitful friends and treacherous winter roads!

Job 6

15 My brothers have dealt deceitfully like a brook,
Like the streams of the brooks that pass away,
16 Which are dark because of the ice,
And into which the snow vanishes.
