Opera Alberta coming to Erskine

Fingers crossed, has spring arrived? The farmers are starting to get out in their fields to work them up

Fingers crossed, has spring arrived? The farmers are starting to get out in their fields to work them up and get ready for seeding. It’s been a long and stormy winter. It’s nice to see those huge snow banks along the road sides disappear. Now we just see the mounds of dirt on the sides of ditch banks indicating that our winter rodents took up residents under the tall piles of snow.

The county has put no bans on the roads this spring and as a result that will allow all grain trucks to get up the roads to get the seed to the cleaning plants and grain moved.
