today’s news and information gleanings from here and there!

Quote for today  “When I lived in Columbia years ago, the neighborhood got together and shoveled itself out. My daughter helped to load her plastic sled with snow and pulled it back through the passage between our house and the neighbor’s house, dumping the snow in our yard to get it out of the way. ” – from a letter to the editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster.
