Thirty Feet and Counting
Yes, the pensive Spring sunshine warmed us yesterday, but today we are back to the very punctual snow. The latest 2.1 inches puts us over the 30 feet mark for the winter, and it is still snowing. At least when the sun comes out it is warm, and we are gaining more minutes of daylight (about 5) each day than inches of snow. (I hope.) In other news, tonight at 7 in the high school the debate team will debate the resolution, "In the U.S. current income disparities threaten the American Dream." It is sponsored by the local We The People group and there will be a discussuion to follow. It should be thought provoking on several levels, especially debating a hot topic with reason and data rather than rancor and emotions. Friday is the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids' Sake bowling party from 4-9 at the school gym, lots of teams are still collecting pledges and it is not too late to sign up for a team, call Sarah if you want to pitch in at 766-2151 or 3428. KHNS is having their Spring Wine Tasting fundraiser at 7 Friday night in the Chillkat Center so you can do both. The Fireweed opens Friday night too-- a sure sign of Spring-- another is Saturday's first ANB flea market of the season, 10-2 in the hall. Saturday night is the Haines Animal Rescue Kennel fundraising stir fry dinner, auction and annual meeting at 5:30 in the school. Call HARK at 766-3334 for more info. Sunday is Palm Sunday which means the annual Blessing of the Fleet Sunday afternoon. Also, the track team has begun practicing. Watch for them running on the roads, as the track has been snow-blowed but it is mucky and shoulder deep with snow.
