time after it, and she said it was one of the most enjoyable things she


did. And you could do that! John is also raising money for charhties in


his daughter's name. We revhved her enough in order for her to donate

day and through tonight. St`ying dry throughout the night, clear skies as


well. The temperatures are going to take a tumble tonight, down to
