Weather and events keep up winter excitement

Let it snow, let it snow. Three full days of snow and now traveling to work, my wipers are trying to erase the tracks of rain falling on my windshield. Last weekend was a great time to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Speaking of weekends we have a fun weekend heading our way.

Anchor Point's Snow Rondi family weekend fun is scheduled for Feb. 24-27. Activities will include snowshoe softball, a parade, pool tournament, bazaar, costume ball, Nordic and snowmachine events, an auction and bingo. The fun-packed weekend is sponsored by the Anchor Point Chamber of Commerce with the assistance of many organizations and individuals.

Don't forget Valentine's Day is Monday. Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. A hug goes a long way.

Have a great weekend and be safe.
