I guess, I could talk about the snow, but I guess this has been an already daily discussion.
I think business at Susie’s has been down due to the weather. She even closed early one day. The heavy snow causes not only travel problems but more farming problems. The more snow, the more hay needed to keep the cattle happy.
Dad has been using more corn this year, too. He did grow two large fields of corn this past year, but I think he may cut back to one field next year. He doesn’t have a corn crusher, and he has been looking for a good one. If anyone has one for sale, just call me at 328-9181.
I remember helping Dad crush corn many years ago, and it was not fun. But I guess it is easier for the cattle to eat than the big ears of corn.
I spoke with Bill Golden the other day and he told me that Josh Logan will return to the Community Center in March. It is just too cold to try to heat the old gym now. So if the weather warms up, look for Josh in March.
I know the road crew has been busy. Thank you for all your efforts. It is near impossible to keep the roads clear when the wind keeps blowing snow drifts. So, thank you again. Keep safe on the roads.
Some of the churches have been having cancellations. Watch your TV for those. Safety first. Worship should begin at the home.
Just so everyone stays informed, Cathy is still on track for her wedding, Feb. 8 at 3 p.m. I hope the weather will be on track as well.

These things cause me concern for the future
I was just thinking the other day about things that are happening in this country that do not bode well for the future.
Cruisin’ with the Oldies
With the sound of classic songs wafting through the air Saturday, hundreds of people took advantage of the summer-like temperatures and turned out for the Kirksville Community Center car show.
It’s egg party time
I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.
Where’s the beef?
Today, the American consumer has more money to spend on the widest variety of foods than at any other time in our history.
Easter bunny's ‛eggbeater’ will fly eggs to Richmond
Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?
Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
