Meota News

Talk about the crazy weather, so very cold and then above zero only to bring rain and icy conditions to everything! Hope everyone is careful, we don’t need broken bones. A ditched vehicle is one thing but bones take so long to heal, while a vehicle can go to the body shop without pain.

It was nice to have daughter Sal and Norm Bouvier over the weekend. Both have made it home, safely. The road was so sloppy around Kerrobert, Sal had to wash her car because salt was even all over the windshield, making visibility poor. Then the road was drier from there on. Norm has returned to Dore Lake where he is helping with the commercial fishing there. It was too windy to go out on the lake Sunday so the fellows had the day off.
