    RAIN RAIN GO AWAY. I think we are all tired of the rain, even though we know there is a purpose for it. Just think if it was snow. How many inches would we have? Temperatures now are feeling more like winter. Bundle up and keep warm.

    Hello everyone. I hope all of you are getting in the Christmas spirit and remember the reason for the season.

    It’s a time to remember all the loved ones who have passed on, the sick, the homeless, the little children who have no one to love them or care for them, the ones in the nursing homes, our soldiers, men and women, who serve for our freedom. There is so much to remember and be thankful for. I hope through this season we can remember all the good things and help out the ones who are not so blessed.

    We have had unusual weather this year. According to the weatherman, the wet year record has been “smashed to pieces” as he put it. This being the wettest year on record with approximately 5 and ½ feet of rain during the year. Even with all that rain, we had a drought sandwiched in there. Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes many places, which took many lives, besides the horrendous amount of damage done.
