Mt. Zion area has had Missouri weather, if you don’t like it wait a few hours. Thursday was snow in the Mt. Zion area, an inch or so, before noon, it was gone. Some areas got more, some none. The wheat fields are getting green, one field had hundreds of snow geese resting on them, really looked like snow. Saw some farmers out doing something with tractors and carts.

Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, Belle was happy again for the snow Thursday where she had time to make a snow angel before it melted. Belle told the chickens they had better start laying or they would be replaced. Robin is making hats and blankets for little people. Mabel is enjoying the little people.

John and Julia Snethen had a good week, with Julia visiting Shella, David and Theo in Knob Noster after picking up their medicine and shopping at the Base. Julia made the trip in one day and was wore out by the time she returned home, but she did keep her doctor’s appointment and her beauty shop appointment.
