  • Gordonsburg/ Little Swan News

    Dorothy Warf, Contributing Writer|Jan 20, 2022

    Well, we have had our third snow and it was a really good one. There was between eight and nine inches in lots of places and the trees were all bent over and some broke causing the power to be off most of the day on Sunday. So, no internet or tv or any other ways to do church if you could not get out to go and most places were closed, cancelling services both morning and evening. Not a lot of traffic on the road but there were a few who challenged it and some who had to feed cattle that got out. The farmers and those with cattle do not get a da...

But the weather forecasters were telling us it was coming, we kept watching and it was looking like it was going to be all rain for us. I got up early the morning before and watched the weather and they were still calling for s...

Whether you call it “platonic marriages” or...
