News From Port Loring & District
We have had our share of snow in the past month that is for sure. Yesterday I walked down to the shell station to get some gas, as after looking at my driveway decided on cleaning it. Today I am sure glad I did, as yesterday it was major heavy wet snow. Took all my snowblower could do to clean it out. If I would have left it till today I am afraid it would have been one huge block of ice. So my vibes were right on once again. Saying that, one has to remember we are given these feelings through out ones life for a reason. Reason being they save us a lot of grief. Most choose not to feel them and act on them. Today most choose to listen to others, like lawyers, doctors, powers that be and the media and not rely on themselves. To bad too. My Opinion Only. Well tea time here and got to check the old wood furnace. I suspect it is asking for more. Have a great day my friends and dress warm if going outside today. The sun will shine a bit later.
