Town Talk II
Freezing wind chill in September? If you were outside last Friday, at the football game like we were, you enjoyed temps in the 40s and wind chills in the 30s. It was a one day winter as temps were back in the 70s and 80s over the weekend. First day of fall is next Monday.
Thanks to the Cargill Meat Solutions cooking crew who braved the cold weather to provide free hamburgers to football fans at Friday night’s game. Even though it was cold the fans still enjoyed the burgers.
