The week’s snow has been really beautiful. I woke up Sunday morning to find huge, white, powdery puffs of snow showering to the ground. At one point the snow was so thick that I couldn’t see 10 feet from the house. It isn’t every day that we get snow here in Texas, so enjoy it while it lasts. We usually get our fair share of ice, though.
School was closed Monday because of the snow. Tuesday was a delayed start.
Friday night Mrs. Kim Irby and I went to the school’s first district basketball game, in Ector. It was their homecoming, and, unfortunately, we lost all three games. I hope that isn’t an indicator of what we are in for throughout the rest of the season, but I’m sure our Hornets will come back at the next game and bring home a victory. By the way, Miller Grove’s Homecoming will be Friday, Jan. 28. Be sure to make plans to attend. We will be playing the Ector Eagles that night as well. The Homecoming ball game will also be the time for the annual “Coaches Vs. Cancer” ball game. It should be a great game, because Friday night’s game was very close for the varsity boys team. I believe we only lost by two points.
Faye Tipps went with her son, Stevie, to hear her youngest son, Monty, sing in Arlington Saturday night. They returned Sunday just before the worst part of the downpour of snow.
Happy birthday to Patsy (Johnson) Hallman on Jan. 9; T.S. Lamb, Cletus Wise and Phyllis (Renshaw) Haywood on Jan. 10; and Chris Abbott on Jan. 13.
Happy 52nd anniversary to my uncle and aunt, James and Margaret Ragan, on Jan. 10.
The annual Miller Grove Water Supply Corporation business meeting and barbecue dinner will be coming up in February. This year it is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 19. That will also be the date of the Miller Grove International Livestock Show, put on by the Miller Grove FFA Chapter.
