Montgomery Locals July 27, 2106

By Staff | Jul 27, 2016

This past weekend the mercury was hovering between 99 and 100 degrees in the shade, not to mention the stifling humidity. I knew it was really bad when the evening rolled around one night this past week and I thought to myself, “It’s starting to cool off nicely,” only to look at the thermometer and see that it dropped to 91 degrees. Thank God for air conditioning!

Ironically I haven’t the heard any of the ice cream trucks in the past several days. I feel bad for all the little kids who would happily welcome a frozen treat on some of the hottest days of the year. But it seems like everyone is staying indoors right now, little kids, adults, and ice cream truck drivers. Hopefully this heat breaks up soon and we can enjoy some cooler weather! I love summer, but days that torturously hot make me wish for fall.

The Montgomery Volunteer Fire Company is in the process of recruiting volunteers. If you are interested in joining please apply at the station in person or call (570) 547-1380 for more information.
