Mining District News

For a while I thought winter had arrived. Nights were cold, but day time was pretty pleasant. I was wondering where our real winter weather was, but today I hear that some really cold weather is on the way. Hearing this I want to remind you to keep your pets warm and safe, preferably indoors. One morning last week, on my way to work, I saw a little black shaggy dog, dead - frozen in the street - very upsetting.  Our pets deserve better.
Hope your New Year started off well!
