Valley News & Views Page 7 January 20th, 2011 The Pastor'sColumn Astrological observers and horopscope followers were sent into a tizzy ("a state of foolish excitement or termporary emotional disturbance" - Webster's) this past week when astronomers with the Minnesota Planetarium Societydropped a bombshell on them. The explosion heard round the astrological charts is summed up in this headline found at "Fox - - 'ge of Aquarius Actually Age of Capricorn, Thanks to the Rotating Earth". People believing they were born under one sign now learn they are actually under a different one. All their horoscope readings and advice have been wrong because Mother Earth rotated them into another sign - or something like that. Read with me James 1:17. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." Concerning the word "variableness" "Barne's Notes'says, "It means change, alteration, vicissitude, and would properly be applied to the changes observed in astronomy". "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" adds, "God is not changeable like this. In every season He is the same, neither does He change like the shadow of a sun dial." How much better to trust an unchanging God. You would be wise to allow God's Word to direct you. "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path" (Psalm 119:105). He will take you safely into tomorrow and beyond. It does not matter when you were born. Nothing about your life can be found in the stars of heaven. But God who created the stars and gave them their place in the visible universe knows all about you , and stands ready to guide you. He will do so when you give your heart and live to Him and then begin walking by faith through God's Word. by pastor leroy aufenkamp Ctt :: :: ?::% tzen UlTdateii00 Pembina County Meals and Tran Are you looking for a New Year's resolution that will be easy to keep?

For the Northern Red River Basin: Current spring flood outlooks indicate that most of the mainstem Red River also has a similar risk of major spring flooding, as was seen there in advance of the 2006, 2009 and 2010 major flood event, but still a 10 percent chance of experiencing the record levels which occurred back in 1997. As in 2009 and 2010, the northern basin has substantially lower snow amount and snow-water equivalent (SWE) amounts than in southern (Fargo) or western (Devils Lake) areas. Snowfall amounts here are running only slightly above normal for the current winter, but they are also higher than last year's amounts. Likewise, summer- fall rainfall amounts were 5- 8 inches above normal, but lower than southern basin amounts. Thus base stream flows are currently high, but generally not at record levels. With higher base stream- flows and snow amount than in 2010, most tributaries in the northern valley have a higher risk than last year of at least moderate flooding, especially the Roseau, Red Lake, and Pembina Rivers. Climate outlook for the spring 2011 snow-melt. At this time a moderate La Nifia is ongoing in the equatorial Pacific and is expected to continue through the spring months of 2011. So far this winter the more classic La Nifia impacts have been evident across the Red River Valley and Devils Lake Basins. Above normal snowfall and generally below normal temperatures have been affecting the region since the start of the winter season. Based on outlooks from the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) as well as historical information during previous La Nifia events there is an enhanced risk for below normal temperatures to continue through the February, March and April time period. There is also an enhanced risk for above normal precipitation during the late winter and early spring months of March, April and May. Historical data suggests that La Nifia springs see a slightly delayed warm up, with a risk for a more rapid rise in temperature in April than is climatologically normal. There is also an enhanced risk for significant rain or snow near the time of the melt. The following is neither a forecast nor an outlook, but is provided as a historical reference of previous La Nifia springs. On balance during an E1 Nifio or ENSO neutral year the average date warm enough to initiate melting is near the end of March or the first few days of April. During years with a La Nifia the average date with temperatures consistently warm enough to initiate snow-melt flooding is about 10 days later. While this example is for the Fargo area, it represents general Pembina County Meals & Transportation would like to thank the following for their generous donations: ORIVILLE THORLAKSON MEMORIAL Thorlakson Family Local Match for Transit Bus Kodabank of Drayton conditions within the Red RiverValley. As we get into the late winter and early spring additional risk assessments of potential La Nifia impacts on the 2011 flood will be available.
