By Lois Lumbra — BRRRRR! Don’t need to say anymore about this Sunday. It was 30 degrees as I went out the door with my little dog for his morning duties. It warmed up to 40 and felt like 20 with the wind and cold rain drops. This is the week we are preparing for the rummage sale and to put things outside may be a bit difficult. Just maybe it will warm up by Saturday.
