  1. Due to the weather, the Science Museum and Cattle Raisers Museum have been closed all week, including today. Maybe they will be open tomorrow?

      Hi Keri! Thanks for the tip. :)

      I sure hope they open for the weekend. The snow is beautiful, but it is killing our local businesses and establishments!

      I hope you and your family are surviving the cold!! :)
