Knox News

Hello All,

It sure has been windy, and cold out there today. I guess this is just to get us ready for what's ahead. Keep warm, everyone. Those that never lost power from the last round consider yourself fortunate indeed. Steve and Louanne lost their power in Kingfield and it was out for some time, but they had a generator to run. That's what I always dread, power outages. Thinking of all on this cold night. Thanksgiving I stayed home, no snow for me as I didn't want to get out in it. To be honest had turkey recently anyway.
