We first attended the Winter Bible Seminar at Rhema Bible Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in 1992. The 2010 meetings were our 17th time to be there. We missed the 1993 meetings because we were at the Get Acquainted Weekend that spring.

We returned to Virginia on Interstate 40 through Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, and Bristol. We took state roads from Interstate 77 at Hillsville. The roads were clear but there was deep snow left on sides of the road. Here are some shots from the car.
