Weather for the week wasn’t too bad. Had a couple of days in the teens in the early morning. Other days were in the 20’s and 30’s each morning. Some days it did warm up; others it didn’t. We had rain late Tuesday afternoon; Thursday we had some snow. We still had that whistling wind each day. There were quite a few turkeys in the field across the street, I guess just checking things out. Saturday we had a snow shower that covered the roads with snow. The roads got plowed, but the wind blew so hard it blew the snow back across the road on the hill above us. Sunday was sunny and not quite so cold, but that darn wind still blew. Now, I hear it’s to hit the 40’s during the week, but rain almost every day. We’ll see what happens. It’s pretty muddy and the ground is so soft. Lots of ruts on the dirt roads where vehicles have traveled. With more rain, it will get quite messy. The month of March started out pretty nice, so does that mean March is coming in like a lamb and will go out like a lion? Hope it will go out like a lamb too.
FLASH!!!! Remember to turn your clocks AHEAD on Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Wish they would leave it one way or the other and not have to do this in March and November.
Sympathy from the community to the family and friends of Ralph Edkin who passed away on February 23rd.
Sympathy from the community also to the family, relatives and friends of Joe Sbardella who passed away on February 24th. His wife, Rose (McDonald) was a former Lopezian and they had a home in Mildred. After moving back to Warren, RI, they came to Sullivan County often during the summer, always coming and helping at Lopez Old Home Day. He was a very friendly, nice fellow. He will be missed.

I had a phone chat with Diane Fanning on Sunday and she said maybe an early spring. Down in Landenberg they have crocuses and daffodils coming up and they have had many robins when it’s been warm. Don’t know where they go when it’s cold, but she said they don’t seen them. It’s really early here for robins yet. Hopefully soon, along with the humming birds.
