The snow over the weekend was beautiful and a lot of work also. Thankfully “It takes a Village” and we always have guys willing to help out. A huge thank you to Jarod Gibson, Robert Pamenter, Shawn Shewemake, Kevin Webster, and Paul and Blaize Klunk for cleaning streets and alleys.
I got stuck in my driveway but thankfully Kenny Johnson was able to pull my car out and blade my driveway for me. I’m blessed to have such good friends.
Also we have three awesome boys in town. Channing Johnson, Benton and Dayton Bailey who love to shovel snow. They would shovel anyone’s sidewalk or deck that needed it. It’s great to have young boys in town who like to do this.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped on Friday to take the tree down and the decorations before the storm hit on Saturday.
