The other day as I was driving home from work I saw two sundogs. They looked like two short horizontal rainbows on each side of the sun. My first thought was, "Our weather is going to get colder". Sure enough the frigid temps have arrived. The good news is by Thursday it is suppose to warm up. Yeah. Until then be sure to bundle up when you go outside.
This week the Cherokee Public Library has several programs for different aged children that will feature Valentine stories, songs, and special activities.
