Was a cold weekend with some snow showers and gusty wind. It was only 8 degrees on Sunday morning. Mother Nature just doesn’t want to be done with us yet with the wintry weather. Check out the full Lopez weather from Sam in another part of the paper. I saw about a dozen doves and fifteen red wing black birds early Sunday morning in a little grassy spot across the street scratching in the dirt. They didn’t stay long. Guess they figured it wasn’t food after all.
Last Wednesday, the 3rd, Church Street, Lilac Lane and Maple Terrace lost power from 4:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. due to a blown transformer or fuse. Was glad to finally have it back on. I feel really bad for those in Texas that were without power for days. Never know how good we have it until it’s taken from us.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale the first and third Sunday of the month. They can be picked up at the Church Hall from Noon to 1 p.m. To order, call 570-928-8909.
Well, it’s coming. On March 14th we SPRING AHEAD with our clocks early Sunday morning by turning them ahead one hour. And, Spring isn’t far behind as that will be here on March 21st. Let’s hope we start to get some half decent weather. Will be good to get out and be able to do things. Some folks have already ordered their seeds for planting this year.
Sympathy from the community to family and friends of Mary Louise (Hoover) Stavisky who passed away on February 23rd.
It’s a good idea with this virus still going around to wear your mask, practice social distancing and wash your hands often. I heard on TV that this pandemic won’t be over with even in March of 2022. Sure hope that is wrong. Don’t forget to support the local businesses as they work so hard to get through this time.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY to all. Hope you have a great, green day.
Do any of you plan to have a sand box this summer for the kids. I saw this on Face Book and thought I’d pass it along. Take one cup of cinnamon and mix it with the sand. It will deter bugs, critters and even cats. Try it to see if it works. I have no kids, so no sand. (Thank you Dorothy.)
Don’t go too many places so don’t see too many people. I do walk but don’t run into anyone. So, don’t know who is around and about. I think most are staying close to home to be safe. When the warmer weather gets here, I’m sure there will be cabin people coming to check things out and spend a day or two or a weekend.
Happy Birthday to Julian Bonner, 11th; Bob McGuire, Sr. and Theresa Pochatko, 13th; Elizabeth Weisbrod, 14th and Gianna Mae DiRocco, 16th. Hope you all have a fantastic day.
Happy Anniversary to Joe and Tina Tabor as they celebrate on the 14th. Have a nice day. Guess that’s it from here. Enjoy your week. Hopefully it will hit 50 degrees as the weather man says. We could use some warm weather and lots of sun to melt the dirty snow and ice. If you’d like news in the paper call me at 570-928-9238; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, before 6 p.m. on Sunday evening. I will put it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
