Here it is snowing again. Lots of events, square dances, etc., were cancelled over the weekend; with most rescheduled for this weekend. The LES Bingo Night has been rescheduled for this Friday, March 6, at 6 p.m. Be sure to attend. Get in on those huge fun baskets created by each class, the cakewalk, hotdogs, and of course bingo! It is a benefit for the Lyons Elementary School. See you there!

Wow, a cold weekend and more to come! We should leave the water from your faucet dripping a little, better to be safe than sorry. My crocuses were peaking out. I hope the snow protected them. Yes, spring is just around the corner.

By March 24, Lyons’ citizens will have chosen by vote whether we are willing to cede five to seven acres in Bohn Park for the purpose of building affordable recovery housing.

Wyoming, More Than Yellowstone

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

Yes, another week gone by, with some snow and more to come. The TV states that Colorado snow pack is fifty inches below normal. Maybe we will get some spring snows, which will do a lot of good. Spring is just around the corner, the crocus are out beside my driveway
