Enjoy the bloomin’ Spring this weekend in Fremont County

    Have you been enjoying the warmer weather this week? There might be a little bit of weather going on today…seems like Mother Nature is still holding onto that last bit of winter…everything seems to be melting fast, but don’t let a little snow keep you from enjoying all of the great things happening in the 10 this weekend!

    It’s been great, driving on the (mostly) dry streets and roads again. What a relief this warmer weather must be for our snow removal crews, but now it’s time for those “springtime assessments”. It’ll be muddy out-country…rivers and streams will be flowing fast…as for me, I’m chompin’ at the bit to plan my flower garden, and maybe hit some greenhouses. Gotta hit the farmers’ markets, too. Shopping local!

    There are a few awesome events going, so check ’em all out, peruse the County 10 event calendar, get out and about, and enjoy Spring in Fremont County!
