Mild, sunny days, is what the
weather man has been sending out for
the past week. With very little snow
on the ground, and each day some of
that melting, it does not seem like it
is the middle of winter. For the past
week the weather has been warm
enough for one to go about without a
heavy coat. It is a relief from the se
vere cold weather that came the first
of December. To prove that the
weather is warm, there were a pair of
robins seen the first of the week here
in town. Where they came from and
where they were going is not known,
hut they Were welcome here as holi
day visitors. May they remain dur
ing the rest of the winter without
getting cold feet-.
