==================

Our weather has really been cooperating lately-
in the 40’s & clear; yes, there are ‘some’ piles of
snow here & there (usually from being plowed into
piles) but for the most part it’s SNOWLESS! YAY!
We actually have a predicted High of 53 on Weds.!
Some rain & clouds but you can walk & drive in
that!

Hope you are all staying warm & in good health.
Remember to not over stress yourself while attempting
to get all the arrangements/cooking/etc. done for the
holiday.

Hugs;
