Well, another storm on the horizon so here I sit Sunday evening typing my news and wondering if we’ll get the 3-5 inches they’re calling for. Guess we’ll find out tomorrow (Monday). We had some really cold mornings and it didn’t warm up much during the day. We did have one day that hit 33 degrees; regular heat wave. This weather has gotta change soon.
I put this item in a couple years ago, but with all the ice we’ve been having, I thought I’d do it again. For sidewalk de-icer, mix 1 teaspoon of Dawn Liquid, 1 Tablespoon rubbing alcohol and one half gallon of hot water. Pour over walkways and they won’t re-freeze.
Distinguished Honor Roll – Serena Armioia; Kyler Burke; and Paige Burke.

Sympathy from the community to the family and friends of Eleanor Grandinetti who passed away on February 13th. She was 99 years young. She was a long time resident of Lopez and involved in many things. I remember her as crocheting many, many lap blankets for Veterans at nursing homes. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale the first and third Sunday of the month, from Noon to 1 p.m. They can be picked up at the Church Hall. Call 570-928-8909 to order.
Can’t believe the month of February is about over. Where does the time go? Hope the warmer weather gets here as fast. Days are getting longer, so that’s nice.
Not much to report. Everyone is staying kinda close to home. I did hear some snowmobiles on Sunday afternoon. Haven’t even seen many deer or turkeys now. Just the birds at the bird feeders.
Happy Birthday to Jacob Williams, 23rd; Bob McGuire, Jr. and Christopher Sneidar, both on the 26th. Hope you all have a nice day.
Don’t forget, wear your mask; do the six foot distancing; wash your hands; and support the local businesses when you can. Pray for this pandemic to finally be over with.
