Ah, Slow Winter Reading

Winter seems to have finally arrived here in Burke with colder temperatures and our first snow dusting of the year.  Or maybe it’s because we were without heat for most of the week, as a week ago today, our heater broke on us and it took 5 days to get it fixed!  We managed to […]
