Holabird Gets White Christmas
The snow is falling at a pretty good clip in the Holabird area. The Ponderosa already has 5 inches and counting. The wind is creating a blizzard of 8 telephone polls on the Harold Hinkle Blizzard Scale. Just to remind Readers, the scale is based on the telephone polls from the Ponderosa to the Mac Zilverberg house, of which there are 10. An 8 means that there are only 8 of the 10 polls visible. The wind is expected to pick up tomorrow.
So how bad is this #8 blizzard. It is so bad that Jehovah's Witnesses are calling on the phone! Jerry Hinkle was the receiver of one such call. It is so bad that Harold and Mary Hinkle are thinking of postponing their family New Years Eve party to New Years Day and having a snowmobile/sledding party. Ashley Pothast wants to show up for that. Jerry is thawing out hamburger in case Kaitlin shows up. Dessert won't be a problem for this party as Jerry has prepared a Jello No Bake for the party tomorrow, which might last another day if he can stop looking at it long enough.
Hansens Get Home Before Blizzard
Ken and Joan Hansen had enough warning that they left before the blizzard struck. Yesterday they drove from the Come Hahn in to the Geitzenauer house in Eden Prairie Minnesota, said "Hello", and "Good-bye" and then beat it for their own home in Forest City, Iowa. They reported that the only bad stretch of road was in De Smet. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate are glad they made it home.

Well, this is it for 2006. If something doesn't come up to prevent it, we'll be together on Monday to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Holabird Advocate Newsblog. We have a lot of things to sort out next year.
W might get impeached, but I doubt it. And we have a State Senator here in South Dakota that has been accused of some rather unspeakable stuff, so I won't speak of it. I'll just say that either he or his accuser is lying and I hope the truth is discovered. The MSM will try to force that Obama guy down our throats to be our next President. By 2008 we'll be darn good and sick of him, and the media both.
I don't know what else lies ahead for us next year. But we'll get through it the way we always do: together. They are calling 2007 the Year of the Open Door. I just hope it's not McGee's closet door that's open or all the junk will fall out! Wherever I am during this year, I'll have a great one.
As part of my anniversary celebration on Monday, I am going to be linking up to the very first edition so those who didn't read it the first time can see how much the Newsblog has improved in 5 years.
So, if the Good Lord's a-willing and the creek don't rise, I'll see you next year!
