Papa was down at the central office this afternoon to call over to New Athens Lumber Co.. They are going to decorate and fix the St. Peter and Paul’s Church in Waterloo. It is to be finished by April 1. The lumber man from New Athens brought some lumber over this evening. It (the road) was too soft, he couldn’t drive in, so he threw it on the ground in our lane and Papa & Rosalia had to carry it in the shed. It kind a quit snowing right now, but we will have lots more yet. We are to have 23 snow this winter, we had 14 snows already. We found 12 eggs today.
