Snow Again?

So much for global warming!  Tommy Boyett, Director of EOC for West Feliciana Parish, tells us that we are expecting a sleet/rain mix with this changing to snow later this evening and tonight.  The Weather Service is predicting a possible accumulation of as much as 2 to 4 inches of snow.  The EOC is monitoring the weather closely and is in touch with the NOAA Slidell Weather Office.  He adds, “Please ask everyone to check on the elderly and their neighbors during this event.  That is what helps make a community strong.”


Live Music

If there is snow during the night, it will be clear by tomorrow afternoon so you can get out and enjoy live music Friday night at The Mag with Copas Trio beginning around 7 pm.  The Blue Room will have music beginning at 9 pm so you can walk on over!  Next Friday, February 19, Gary Bello plays at The Mag.
