Garbage Day!


"---- to Roger Nichols on your retirement today from the V.A. clinic.
Now on to your next "career" path,
grandkid day care!"

From Jennifer Neff.




"The greatest snow storm ever known in this country before or since commenced on the last day of March (1807). it was very cold and the storm continued a week. A great body of snow fell and drifted badly.

Nearly one hundred inhabitants of the Huddle turned out with teams and shovels to break the road to the Center. About half way there they met the Center people working their way through the snow drifts to get to the Huddle. Thus it required the energies of these two villages all day to break one mile of road, the most public road in town, too. " Abner Livermore, 1851.

More about the weather, later!



Even from the road, you can see Sylvia and Phil's crocuses!

The Bechys have joined the ranks of runners!

Tennis, anyone?

Out in the countryside, the sun shone, yesterday, on what we thought were the last patches of snow.

Travis Olivera - Before & After

Travis was shaved bald as part of the St. Baldrick's "shaving the way to conquer kids' cancer" event at Utica College. Travis raised money for children's cancer research for the "privilege " of having his head shaved.


From Jeff Reynolds:

"The 7th Day of Spring"

"Another busy Monday morning for Miss Jill in the Children's Room."

It's Pop Warner time, again!

TONIGHT AT THE LIBRARY 6:00 P.M. Free Movie; Free Popcorn!

Come early to get a good seat!




It's 35.4 degrees at 7:30.

THIS is what it's doing, outdoors, now!

And this is what it's going to do - according to WKTV:

"A winter storm warning is in effect on Friday for Otsego, Hamilton, Fulton, Montgomery, and Schoharie County. A winter weather advisory is in effect on Friday for Herkimer County. A winter storm watch remains in effect for Southern Oneida, Madison, and Chenango County.

Light rain and snow will greet you on the way out the door this morning. This precipitation is not related to Friday's anticipated storm. Regardless, the hilltops around the area will likely see a light coating of snow.

A bigger storm system will develop in the Atlantic and track up the eastern seaboard on Friday. The best chance for an accumulating snow will be in the Catskills and Poconos. Locally, the hills of Otsego County will likely see 6" or more of snowfall, with lesser amounts for the remainder of the area. Check back later today for our official snowfall forecast.

Chilly and windy weather returns for the weekend, with scattered snow showers. A rain maker looks to be in the cards as we head into early next week."

Don't blame me!

It isn't April Fool's Day --- yet!


Have a great day, everyone!
