Edmeston ~ March 19, 2017
Several activities for St. Patrick’s Day had to be cancelled or rescheduled due to the snow storm. The streets and roads looked much like they used to in The good olde days”.
Good news: ; Monday, March 20th (according to the calendar) is the first day of Spring!

Guess I goofed up last week and didn’t remind the readers about the time change. Every Spring and Fall there are some who set the clocks in the wrong direction.
As I write this it certainly doesn’t seem like it would ever be Spring with the cold strong wind and snow flurries (keep in mind it’s still March)
I have always been told that the pussy willows will come out in March no matter what the weather. Guess this is true as there are some out on County route 49.
Some are predicting a hot dry summer. Time will tell.

Nature couldn’t decide if March should come in like a lamb or lion, so she gave us a sample of both.
Some local residents tell of having Spring bulbs poking up through the ground, only to have them covered with snow and cold weather.
It isn’t Spring yet, so when that happens I hope mother nature comes through for us.

Beautiful day Sunday. Helps to start to get over cabin fever. With the warmer weather, I wonder if the sap has started to run. With no frost in the ground it may be a short season.
A couple of readers tell of hearing and seeing robins.
The customer service department at New York Central Mutual gave Valentines and home made cookies to the residents of West Hill Terrace for Valentines Day. These were greatly enjoyed and appreciated by all, they want to say Thanks.
The Edmeston Tea Circle (builders of the local building miniatures) have a few of this years building (the funeral home) if anyone is interested. They also have a very few of some of the past buildings.If you are interested or would like to view what they have left, they are at the Edmeston Free Library. The entire collection is on display at the Museum.

Pot holes seem to be in season, especially at the four corners in Edmeston. Big problem there, State route 80 and county route 20 come together there and the officials can’t decide who should fill them. Enough tiny cars might fill the holes and take care of the problem.
Still time to order fruit, (Empire apples, navel oranges and grapefruit) from the Rotary club. Phone 965-6623.
Well drilling at the location of the new Dollar Store has started. With little or no frost in the ground, construction may start soon.
Just a reminder for the boy friends, Valentines Day is Wednesday, February 14th.

Our January weather has been much different then we usually have. No doubt we will still catch some bad weather, but at least we are getting closer to Spring.

If you have never fed the birds or watched them, try it! Some like to eat what I call regular, while others like to hang upside down to eat. While looking out my kitchen window at my feeders, I see a wide selection of birds. The most colorful are the cardinals, followed by the J’s then I guess the woodpecker, the a big selection of small birds. With the wind and snow, seeing the birds at leastmakes you think of SPRING

With bright sunshine streaming through the bedroom windows those who stayed up to watch the New Year in, missed a beautiful morning. For travel for Christmas and New Years, it was ideal. As usual it will take a little used to getting the new year (2017)
The donation breakfast sponsored by the fire department is this Sunday, January 8th with serving from 7:00 to 10:30. Happy New Year!
