Merry Christmas to all...

And to all a lot of snow. If you live in Bottineau. We got slammed last night with a blizzard, no travel advisories, the works. Estimations of 8-10 inches of snow, should put us up over 50 inches already this season, and its not even January yet!

This past week I covered a Westhope-Newburg double header last Tuesday and a Bottineau High hockey game on Friday night. I also was able to write a really touching story that has to do with 9/11, memorials, skiing and bucket lists.

I will be traveling home (weather permitting) Thursday and making home for the holidays. I will only be able to stay a few short days and work will again be beckoning.

I went 8-8 on my NFL picks this week, one of my worst weeks of the season. Hopefully all turns around next week. I am 125-95 on the year, so well above .500.

I had lots of good pictures this week, here are the ones I didn't put in print:
