Weather Report

He sends lightning with the rain and
brings out the wind from his storehouses.
                     —Jeremiah 10:13

Opened in 1965, Houston’s Astrodome was the world’s first domed sports stadium. Dubbed the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” it brought climate-controlled 72-degree comfort to sports fans who had long endured heat, humidity, and hail.

Today eight NFL and seven MLB teams play their home games in domed coliseums.

In 2016, after years of delayed tennis play due to drenchers, Arthur Ashe Stadium debuted its retractable roof at the US Open.

Even some churches have gotten creative. First Baptist Church in Amarillo, Texas, installed heated sidewalks to safeguard winter worshipers from broken bones and dislocated discs.

Humans can implement a degree of protection. But only God governs the weather; if you think you’re in control, try changing it.

We can’t accurately predict,
much less control, the weather.
