Another week gone by, cold and windy, but I see some crocuses (or are they croqui?) blooming, so spring is near.
SUCH A WIND!
93 miles per hour here in Lyons. Worse than Boulder, which is unusual.
Thanks to the Lyons firemen, who contained that fire in Stone Canyon so fast. They really did wonders, as hard as the wind was blowing. That was truly a scary situation. There doesn’t seem to be any answer as to the wildfires. We want rain and snow, which makes the grass grow, which then dries up in the hot summer months, creating a lot of dry grass to burn! Be sure to watch that you don’t start a fire by putting hot ashes out, or sparks from a vehicle or mower, etc. Take care!

Wow, what a lot of good wet snow. Just what we needed! However, schools were cancelled. I think the School District has a few “snow” days planned, and we don’t want to endanger the students waiting for the bus or taking them to school in the early morning. We do have to say, Lyons is in the “Banana” Belt, not as much snow, not so cold, nor not much wind, and it melted fast.

HERE IT IS, VALENTINE’S WEEK!
Let’s hope you all had a great time, and bought that Valentine!
It is still cold and snowy, with more snow to come. A good time for the Polar Bear Club. brrrrrThanks to Bill Martin, who delivered my Meals on Wheels this morning, consisting of Chicken Cordon Bleu and a package of Sweetheart Candies and to Mary Lou of The Lyons Golden Gang, who sent along a “Marshmallow Melt” to brighten our day! Valentine’s Day is always sad for me as it is for other widows or widowers. Mr. LaVerne always brought a box of candy and put it on my typewriter. I still miss that, but son, Jerry,

Here it is the first of February, the sweetheart month, sometimes the cold and snowy month. Let’s hope for the best. Lots of activities going on this month, so be sure to participate and join in. Have fun!
DON’T FORGET YOUR VALENTINE!
This Saturday is the Foot ‘n Fiddle Square Dance Club’s 50th Sweetheart Square Dance Ball at the 4-H building in Loveland. A Mr./Mrs. Valentine will be chosen, and Jim and Bonnie Pardy of Lyons (last year’s sweethearts) will crown them.
