Week of 1/29 - 2/2/18

Hello Panthers! What a beautiful weekend it turned out to be! Always nice to see the sunshine and warmer temperatures. I am sure it will not last long. I think Tuesday morning is supposed to be near freezing again. Kind of funny how fast we seem to adapt though. No rain is expected so we should be good, not that I am the new weatherman.
