Hope you all had an enjoyable week. The weather really was up and down. Cold and windy with temps in the teens; warm, nice and sunny. Had a couple of power outages but not for long. I really feel bad for those in Lairdsville that were affected by the tornado that went through. So sad and such devastation. Was a big loss for those involved.
Mother Nature is still playing with us and wish she’d get on the same page we are on and get rid of this miserable weather.
One of our Lopez residents, Travis Sperry, lost his home and everything in a house fire on Wednesday. Any help you can give will be so appreciated. Clothing and sizes are: Jeans – 30×30; Shirts – Large; Shoes – Size 10; winter coat, jacket, and hoodie – Size Large. Anything else you may have would also be great. He has nothing right now. It was all lost in the fire. Thank you in advance.
Hope everyone is well. There are a lot of colds going around. The weather being up and down sure doesn’t help.
I think some of the Borick clan were in over the weekend. I saw activity down there. The weather wasn’t the best but they always have a good time here.
Remember, the next Civic meeting will be on Wednesday, the 20th, 6 p.m. at the Township Building. Hope you can make it. Have some important things to take care of.
If you’re in the woods or tall grass, be aware of ticks. They are plentiful this year. A friend has a white dog and can easily see all of them when she comes in from outside. She was hoping to get a black dog but now is glad they had no black and took white.
Did you know you can use oatmeal for other than eating? It can be used for fast pain relief of arthritis by Mixing 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl that has been warmed in the microwave for one minute. Cool slightly and apply the mixture to your hands for the soothing relief of the arthritis pain. Wonder if it would work for sore feet as well.
Wish the weather would warm up. Will be time to start thinking of gardens and flowers. I did see some daffodils trying to peek through the ground but weren’t having much luck. I haven’t seen any crocuses so far. Too many frosty days.
Palm Sunday will be this coming Sunday, the 10th. The month is passing by quickly already. I guess pretty soon the Easter Bunny will be around too since Easter will be the following Sunday. Hope you have your Easter bonnet all ready to wear. Pretty soon it will be time to color the eggs.
The bear won’t let us feed the birds, so haven’t seen them around much lately.
The week of March 27th through April 2nd we had temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s. What happened here? We sure didn’t have those temps. Twelve degrees is pretty darn cold.
Happy Birthday to Shawn Pequignot, 6th; Jaron Williams, 11th; John Risser, 12th; and Joyce Walsh, 13th. Hope you all have a nice day.
Happy Anniversary to Sheldon and Penny (Benjamin) Sperry as they celebrate on the 13th. Enjoy and many more your way.
That’s it. Enjoy your week. Supposed to be warmer but rain predicted almost every day. Just hope it’s not snow.
