    A LITTLE SNOW. I’m not the biggest fan of snow, but it’s pretty coming down. I just don’t like it on the roads. Last Monday night the roads were slick because of the cold temperatures.

    Remember to put straw in your pets’ houses if outdoors to keep them warm and give them fresh water every day. Don’t assume the iced water will melt.

    ROOK. Rook is played at 7 p.m. each Thursday at the HowevalleyVertreesCommunity building. Everyone is welcome.
