Hello To All,

The weather has changed from the terrible cold ..below zero weather to melting snow, icy dooryards, and temp's in the 40's..All night long my roof had sliding snow, ice crashing down, and endless noise here. I never got much sleep needless to say. It is foggy, and raining here too, as I write this.  Sure seems good to look out at the thermometer and see 40 plus degree's on it today.Stay warm everyone, and hope for the best.

Looking for Waitress

Mammie's Country Kitchen Restaurant is looking for a reliable full time waitress. Must be able to work night's and week-ends.References required. See Diane Jones.

Until next week,

Here it is raining today. We are going to be getting our cold temp's back soon. It seems it always rains and ruins the snow for the snowmobiler's. It is sad, as they have to go off away to even ride anymore. The local trails are open, but some changes have been made, as areas have been closed off from last year I hear. Too bad this happens after trails are made and maintained.  Oh well, it is winter, and the weather is what it is. Stay safe and warm all.
