After a few days of temperatures in the 70s and 80s, Monday morning brought snow and below zero wind chills as winter returned for a day. The volunteer firemen and EMS were called out at 6:30 a.m. to a wreck on the Hwy 214 overpass and then another call to a pickup rollover at FM2397 and FM3140. The east-west roads were especially slick they said.

The moon was not the only thing that turned orange in Friona this week. The little blue building on Hwy 60 that houses Becky’s Burritos got a facelift, with a new orange paint job and nice red awnings.

Blood donor Larry Martin is tended to by Coffee Memorial Blood Center technician Jere Blackman during last Thursday’s Friona blood drive. Friona citizens gave 61 blood donations and continue to respond generously. Several donors came to give but could not donate for various reasons. Thanks to all who contributed and those who tried. Blood donors give the Gift of Life.
Well yes that was snow and zero degree wind chill Monday morning. Not enough snow to amount to anything though. Just annoying. Our volunteer firefighters and EMS were dispatched to two different accidents caused by slick roads. The first call was at 6:30 a.m. to an accident on the 214 overpass where two vehicles hit almost head-on. Injuries were minor. The second was a while later to a pickup rollover at FM2397 and FM3140. Firemen used the jaws to cut off the cab to extricate the driver, identified as Cody Lanier.
