Next edition Mar 23rd-29th
Welcome to another edition of the Donnelly news
Weather news: we had a snowstorm late Thursday/ early Friday that brought more snow and ice to the area causing most schools the area to close. The weather was fairly decent on Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday but enroute home from Herman on Sunday evening it was starting to blow and drift again and by Monday we had a full blown blizzard on our hands, so most schools and other events were canceled and/or postponed again. Tuesday it was time to put the snow removal equipment back to work. Many thanks to my house guest for shoveling me out again.
