IN THE NEWS
Operation Warm Winter Was a
BURNEY - A haphazard, drifting flurry of small snow flakes had just started to fall in the Assembly of God Church’s gym parking lot. There were only four or five cars parked there.
It was 2:40 p.m. and Operation Warm Winter was due to start in 20 minutes.
Inside the gym were rows of tables piled high with coats and labeled “Men”, “Women” etc. There were at least 20 folk already going through the stacks, looking for a coat that would fit them.
Stephanie Pruitt, who was in charge grinned and said they started coming so I decided to let them in.
The piles of coats as well as boots, hats and gloves that had been purchased or given to the operation, were the result of giving folks, as well as private and official sponsorships totalling over $8,000 this year.
The Operation Warm Winter’s goal - make sure no one goes without
coats or shoes this winter.

Area Gets a Little Snow and Cold Temps
It was cold last week, getting down to zero in some areas overnight Thursday. The winds were someplace from annoying to frigid. The forecast was for 6-8 inches Friday afternoon to Saturday morning.
Then it snowed, coming down hard during the early evening hours. It looked like everyone would wake up to the promised 6-8 inches. It didn’t happen.
Saturday it was downright cold again, the snow was loose and crunchy, but at 2.5 inches, it was little more than a way for children and husbands to get scolded for dragging it inside.
At 6 a.m. Sunday thermometers showed it was -8 to -10 in Cassel and Burney. It was -2 in Burney Monday at 8 a.m.
The forecast was for extremely cold and generally sunny through midweek.
