COOLER THAN NORMAL: After several days of much warmer than normal temps, we're looking at a cooler than normal day on Sunday with highs around 65° under a bright, sun-filled sky! We dropped to 35° earlier this morning and expect to be back in the 30's once again by Monday morning. I do, however, see a nice warming trend for the upcoming workweek with very little chances of rain.
SUNDAY CHURCH: How about joining us at Trinity Assembly in Algood today for our 10:30 am (CDT) service. If you're local and don't have a church home, you can find us at 201 West Wall Street. If you're out of this area, we can be found LIVE on the web.
