New Years Weather

The landscape is white here in Otsego this morning however there is less than an inch as our snow drought continues.  We have had over two inches of rain for the month which would have been a significant snow accumulation if it had been cold enough.  Our lack of almost no severe weather this year […]

Happy Birthday to My Wife
