February 24, 2017 - In This Issue:
The flowers and budding trees are trying to disprove the groundhog's prediction of a lingering winter. And with all-time record high temperatures expected today, who could argue with Mother Nature. But her force is still one to be reckoned with as we expect strong storms to move through our area overnight with temps in the 40s this weekend.

But with hints of spring, many of us are making plans for home remodeling or sprucing up our outside living space. Now is the time to start planning those projects and dreaming about those backyard BBQs. And the perfect place to get those ideas or talk with home remodeling specialists is the Southern Ohio Home & Garden Show. This event will be celebrating its 20th year, but now under the direction of the Chamber and sponsored Gerber Insurance Agency, Advanced Services, Universal 1 Credit Union and LCNB.

The Home & Garden Show will take place April 1 & 2 at the Ross County Fairgrounds.  For more information, click here.

And enjoy today's weather as we get back to blustery temps the rest of the weekend.
