Humbird (4 March 1971)

Some of our folks are still waiting for the snowplow to come and plow them out. Snow-blowers, yes, they are good, but cannot blow the snow up over the big drifts we have. March came in cold, a zero temperature, but by mid-day it was in the high 20’s. The old saying March comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb, and vice versa. Oh - well - These weekend blizzards keep most folks home so there is a scarcity of news.

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Finnegan of Burlington were dinner guests Sunday at the Arnold Matti home.

Mrs. Freida Zerbel is visiting at the LaVern Kaufman home in rural Fairchild for several days.
