Weathersfield News March 23, 2016

Another week of wacky weather. Has this been the weirdest winter you've ever  lived through? I was all set to turn over the garden and BAM the temperature drops again. I'm not sure what season we are in. Thank goodness we're all hardy New Englanders and know to just roll with whatever Mother Nature dishes out for us.
