A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


It Was a Strange January – 1 February 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

Weather-wise, the first month of the New Year was strange here. The mildness of its start – a high of 70 degrees F. in the shade on January 6 – gave way to icy temperatures until the lake finally froze.

In our over 27 years of living in this house, we can’t recall another January without a measurable amount of snow. The dustings of this past January hardly amounted to a total of half an inch, if that much – nothing to sweep or shovel.

January 2006’s total snowfall was 12 inches, and that was half the normal amount for a January in our area. If November and December 2005’s accumulations are added in, last winter’s snowfall amounted to 27 inches by January 31, 2006. Thus far this winter we’ve had nearly zero of the white stuff!
