Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning, dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Happy New Year wishes to all our Chinese friends. This is the year of the horse.
No matter what the groundhog said yesterday, you know we always have to wait until St. Patrick’s Day before we see the end of winter around here.
Can you believe the Atlanta area last week? Yeah, they had an ice glazing and about 2 inches of snow and they were totally shut down. They need to spend some time in Western New York and “man up” a bit. It took my son in Lawrenceville, Ga., 23 hours to get home. At least he was stuck near a Waffle House so was able to have a couple of breakfasts, hot coffee and a good, warm place to pass the time.
