After a very cold and snow filled Winter with high utility and propane bills, Spring began to show her first signs of life as the grass has begun to turn green, the wild lilys north of Bethel have showed their beauty and temperatures reached almost 80 degrees on Saturday, April 12. Kids and adults alike enjoyed the day and if one had their windows open, the wonderful sounds of Spring were a delight to the ears. But Winter was not ready to let go and on Monday, April 14, he made an appearance with freezing temperatures and snow that fell periodically throughout the day. But there is hope, as the future forecast looks good and hopefully it will be time to soon close the book on Winter for a while and enjoy the beauty of Spring and Summer. Only.........this is Missouri!!!  2856
