Now that the weekend is here, most of us usually think of rest and relaxation. That is not the case for those living in areas affected by the incredible amounts of snow we have seen lately. I saw a photo where the weight of the snow had actually caved in the front door of a house! There have been roof collapses, people stranded on the highway, and other hardships associated with the weather. With Thanksgiving approaching, I am grateful that we are safe and able to keep warm. Here's hoping that everyone has a safe and happy holiday as they begin their travels "over the river and through the woods" to their Thanksgiving celebrations. Have a good weekend! ~Michael S. Pauley
