The Monday morning snow blanketed the city park and the town as winter rolled through again and temperatures fell into single digits. By Wednesday it had melted away but more snow is predicted for this weekend, then even more next week. It is still winter. Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday March 8 and the first day of spring is Friday March 20.
Town Talk II
What can we say about the weather? Sunny one day, snowy the next. Plays havoc with lots of people's plans, getting to work, doctors' appointments, and shopping trips. More winter stuff forecast for the weekend. Maybe you saw one of our Friona snow photos on Doppler Dave's weather forecast at 6:00 p.m. Monday. Better go fill up your vehicle and stop by the grocery store.
