News for March 29th 2012–It’s Cold Outside!


I thought it was finally getting warm here, I guess I thought wrong. It was 80F on Saturday then on Monday it dropped to 26F, goofy weather we got going on and going down to 31F tonight. I was ready to turn the air conditioner on, but instead I’m turning the furnace back on.  Anyway, we got more reviews coming for you of course, but for now red the news from our friends.
