Snow, snow, snow. We have quite the winter wonderland here after this last storm. More snow seems to be on the way. I want to thank my neighbors who have been tremendous about helping my family while I've been in the hospital. My strep turned much worse. I'm home again but still not nearly myself yet.
With all the snow it's important to check roofs, especially storage buildings. In fact, rather than check it might be a good idea to take some snow off in any case. Another thing to consider is the edge of curbs and driveways. Can you see oncoming traffic or vice versa when pulling out? And does the mail carrier have enough room to navigate. Plan now before the next batch comes.
Another thing is that many food sources for animals are deeply buried now, so many animals might come out a bit more. Moving slow and steady with an idea of what is around you is always a good idea. It might be nice to throw some healthy extras out to our wildlife neighbors right now. Birdseed is available at a couple of locations right here in Keeseville and you can just throw it on the ground - no birdfeeder required.
I haven't heard any specific word yet, but I believe that the dinners from the Catholic Woman's Group should be happening real soon. Check with the Keeseville Rectory for a definitive answer.
People who want or need a brief, quiet prayer time should be aware that The Immaculate Conception Church has Adoration every Sunday from noon until four. This is a great quiet time to reflect and recharge oneself.
Many organizations are starting to plan their springtime events. Please do keep me posted and I'll be glad to put anything going on right here in my column.
Thanks and be very careful whilst enjoying all our snow. Stay safe.
