Montgomery Locals Mar. 1, 2017

By Staff | Mar 1, 2017

This past week saw record high temperatures for the month of February, according to Accuweather it was 76 degrees in Montgomery on Friday. Most of last week saw temperatures in the 50s and 60s. Despite waking up to flurries on Sunday morning, I choose to believe that spring is on its way.

THOT “If a man has talent and cannot use it, he has failed. If he has talent and uses only half of it, he has partly failed. If he has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, he has gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few men ever know.” -Thomas Wolfe
