Spring is here, and Spring Break. The weather is good, the crocuses (or is it croci?) are blooming, and the town is recovering. All seem to be doing fairly well.

Hi everyone! Spring has arrived. The Garden Club’s daffodils are popping up, and will be blooming soon (our thanks to that group of hard workers).

Another week gone by. Cold, icy, and now nice. That is Colorado. We can be lucky we don’t live back east. Time for LHS track and baseball so we need some good weather.
THE FLOOD: The only good thing I can think of about the flood, is that it helped us get acquainted with our neighbors, with others about town, with FEMA folks throughout the world (such as Maryland, Puerto Rico, Oklahoma), with state and county folks, with those from neighboring towns, with volunteers groups, etc. It has brought people together,
