Good Morning, White Hall!
It’s been a beautiful week. Cold at night, but warm in daytime. A little snow, but lots of sunshine!
This is a special part of the year for me. I enjoy seeing the hills and mountains that you can’t see with all the leaves! The fall colors were gorgeous, but now we can look forward to snow. I’m not ready for it, but we are definitely getting to see some if you get up early enough.
The “Mall” is coming along. New stores, but I do wish they would pave the road into the Middletown Commons at the stoplight. It is not only dusty, but really rough. At times it’s a little hard to tell where the cars are going to turn, or go which way.
