Winter doesn’t go without a fight, but plans forge ahead

by Marcie Masterson

Winter rears its ugly head!
Although last week was wonderfully warm, Saturday’s high of over 70 degrees plummeted overnight to the low 40s, and the first of the week was absolutely frigid with various forms of frozen precipitation and school closures. It appears we’ll have at least another 10 days of cold weather. On the bright side, many of those days will include rain, and there’s noone here that will turn that  down. While we need all the rain we can get, we are so much better off than a year ago when we had no rain in January and February, and only a scant inch in March.

It’s all grey: ‘Fifty Shades’ too bland for its own good

Whispering can be sexy, but not when it’s the only tone of voice used over a two hour period. Just as miscast as Dornan is
sophomore director Sam Taylor- Johnson, whose lack of vision clouds any real character development in either lead and  
limits the film to late-night Cinemax fodder.

Although Punxsutawney Phil

Although Punxsutawney Phil, the northern groundhog, predicted six more weeks of winter on Feb. 2, Pawnee the miniature donkey from the Frontier Legends Oatmeal stable decisively ate his oats, predicting an early spring! Who do we believe is right? Only time will tell.
