Newsy Tidbits

THE AZALEAS ARE COMING
At Honor Heights Park, the home of Muskogee's annual Azalea Festival, the azaleas are looking pretty good despite an ice storm last week and tornado-carrying storms last night.

I walked the park and it looks much like our yard with limbs and branches down on the paths. It will take a crew a few days to clean it up.
Think they would come to our yard next? Me, either.
