    WEATHER. Snow, rain, wind, cold and sunshine. That’s what February seems to be like. On Feb. 7 we got lots of snow. Hardin County Schools were let out 1 hour early. As I write this in the evening, it is still snowing. We probably have at least three inches so far.

    COMMENTS. I’ve been getting a lot of good comments about the Hoover’s wit section in my column. Thanks for the good feedback.
