The calendar tells us spring is only a week away, but nature tells us not to put the snow removal items away, we have been blessed with a lot more snow. Our biggest worry is with all the snow we have and we know that it will turn into water soon, hopeful that we do not have a lot of flooding. Ash Wednesday starts us off into the Lenten season. This was kicked off with an ecumenical service on Wednesday. This past weekend we also had a day or two of high winds, on Friday March 4 our community experienced a bad house fire. The home of Melinda & Matthew Gay was completely destroyed; fortunately they were able to have shelter with family members. The winds also did some other minor damage around the community.
