Gerald and Holly Anderson and family attended a sale on Route 35 near Shade Gap on Saturday despite the steady rain.

Creeks were quite high by Sunday morning with a few spilling over the roadways. Thankfully the snow was gone before the rain began. I will miss the snow for one reason only; it was a great way to get the mud off your shoes. Spring officially arrives on Saturday, so get your onions and lettuce planted.
