The Week Ahead: Friday, January 5 through Thursday, January 11, 2018
January 5, 2018
With continuing record breaking cold temperatures, the early days of the new year find us sticking close to home and, though some snow remains, all but the heartiest are avoiding staying out doors for long. As for those wintertime staples, building snowmen and snowball battles, the snow, seemingly freeze dried, refuses to cooperate. With cabin fever setting in on all ages, Island libraries and others have gamely stepped up to the plate with indoor fun to help burn off some of that excess energy for the young and filling that hankering for something new for the rest of us. Moderating temperatures are anticipated, so with fingers crossed inside our mittens, we hope you all enjoy the Week Ahead!
