Singing on January 8th...

The monthly reminder about our Sunday, January 8th, singing at the General Store at the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History is truncated and many hours later than originally planned. OG&E had a power outage Friday afternoon and we were in the second group of homes to be restored over six hours later.  However, it gave me a chance to break out a couple of antique kerosene lanterns that still work just fine and turn on the gas logs for warmth and ambiance. Any similar snow storm stories can be exchanged during the break on Sunday. We'll plan on starting at 1:30 P.M. and sing until 4:00 P.M. Those who get to Springdale early are welcome to join the singer's table in the back room at AQ Chicken House around noon.

My intent had been to wait until Friday afternoon to include the latest weather information. The first half of the list, A - M, got their late email on Friday night, but transmission was very slow. By the time I got the N - Z list loaded, my computer couldn't find Gmail or Google. Cox Internet and half their TV channels were down. It's now Saturday and Gail Cowart would say, "It really is a beautiful day in Arkansas." I'll post any last minute updates there.

As always, be sure to check your favorite source of weather information Sunday morning. The national weather service believes Springdale will enjoy"Sunny" conditions with a balmy 40 degrees by Sunday afternoon, but a very cold 10 degree is expected before daylight. Always check I Drive Arkansas' winter driving conditions at: Click on the blue snow flake icon, and you can see check boxes for both road conditions and what is on the roads. AHTD has one of the easiest to read online state maps reporting driving conditions of all the states between Mountainburg and Yellowstone National Park. It's your highway dollars at work. Check it out before winter travel and stay safe.

Hope you're staying warm and that you can join us on Sunday for our January singing.
