Alright, I have to admit that I am a huge Kentucky basketball fan, but I was proud of the Gamecocks the other night.

I love it that you always post fun things to do in your town! I doubt things will pick up tonight here in LKN. The snow isn't so much of an issue as the new sleet/ice/wintry mix! But a bunch of people are attempting to go to work today, even though the governor says not to venture out! Hard core!

Did you make it to any of the fun events?  The magic show and the circus sounded like the things I'd enjoy the most.
