Staying in during all the snow, ice

I know what is on everyone’s mind this week, snow and ice! My kids all called giving me helpful advice on what to do to prepare for the worst, then called to be sure I was staying inside. I assured them that they need not worry, I was home and here I would stay.
Everyone I am sure is praying we don’t lose power and at the time I am writing this it is Sunday night, so by the time you are reading this hopefully, prayerfully we still have power. Pray for the first responders, the 911 workers, the law from all departments, and workers at the hospital and nursing homes, and mostly for those linemen who have to be out in this bad weather helping us.

Laura Jo Danzler from Orlando, FL spent the week with her mother Laura Laughlin. They enjoyed visiting and dinner one night with Annie Busby and girls in Mathiston. Laura is recovering at home following minor surgery.
Dana Wells recently enjoyed spending her weekend in Starkville with her son J B Wells.
