Washburn (28 March 1974)

Spring was supposed to have arrived last Thursday, but we wonder? Today, (Saturday) is more like some of the first days of winter with our five degrees below zero and maybe lower in some places. Snow flurries again on Thursday and Friday, with a strong wind on Friday and drifted at times so looked sort of blizzard and sort of a disagreeable day. Guess if we wait patiently spring will arrive after a while. Think the weatherman gets mixed up sometimes.

Bible study will be held at the Lyle Cary home in Sherwood Thursday evening.
