I wish to offer my appreciation for those who assistance by providing news to me for this column. This is a news of a community, and all are a partial of it. we conclude all a certain comments about how it is written. Each one is severely appreciated.

Winter has arrived with a reprisal in Erie County; and we am blissful it is them who has set a inhabitant record with their some-more than 50 inches of snowfall. For those of us who are reduction than 60 inches tall, it is a frightening suspicion of being held out there in that low of snow.

I urge all had a good Christmas weekend, with family and friends.

We had a good cooking with son and family, Eric and Kelly Abrams, and grandson, Dalton, in Grand Valley. We also had repast with daughter and son-in-law, Cindy and Scott Pettit.

Kelly’s brother, Terry Teasdale, and his son, Simon, were there from Pittsburgh, and we always suffer saying them. Simon is unequivocally flourishing adult fast. It was 60 degrees in Pittsburgh when they left, Saturday, so they were astounded during how cold it was Christmas morning and all day.

Our son, Eric, was on call for REA Electric Co., from Youngsville, and was called out during 6 a.m., again after he had dinner, and also twice in a evening. Utility workers have to go when there is a problem, and they never know when a call competence come and how prolonged it will take to get it fixed. we consider of a application workers who are so bustling when there is bad weather, such as in Erie, right now. We need to urge for a workers out there in bad weather.

Many trafficked for a holiday, this year, and so many had a terrible time removing behind home, with so many flights canceled, and a dangerous highway conditions. We don’t like to transport really distant in bad weather; things change as we get older, and we are not as brave as when we were young. We have talked with many others who do not wish to transport in bad weather.
