This past week we had another Spring blizzard in northern Minnesota. This one came as a bit of a surprise in how strong the winds were, besides the 13″ of new snow with it. Our little respite, St. Francis Lodge (, was right in the path of the storm. After the three storm a calm came over our campus. I took this picture at 7:00 AM on Sunday, April  14th, looking down on the lake. After the Storm, “The Cross Still Stands”. A picture says a thousand words indeed.
