Ice Storm

Well what a winter we have had so far. I don't know about anyone else but I am already sick of the snow ,cold and ice. We personally spent Christmas in the emergency shelter in Belfast. The American Red Cross did an amazing job of making everyone fell safe and welcomed. So with that I apologize for not having a column for a couple of weeks but there were many obstacles in the way not the least being a lack of power. So better late than never,I hope everyone had a good holiday over all.
