Good morning, fine folks of Adair and Russell counties! Crank that George Jones, because it’s finally Friday.
Today marks Day No. 3 for this website, and as luck would have it, the marketers and PR folks who come up with fake holidays have graced us with a trio of questionable options: National Chocolate Covered Nut Day, National Clam Chowder Day, and National Skip the Straw Day.
We would not recommend celebrating all three today, though we also wouldn’t recommend eating clam chowder with a straw, so maybe you’re OK if you only choose two of the three. Either way, the weekend is here, and we’re not going to let generic pseudo-holidays throw us off today.
It’s just after 7 a.m. currently, and it’s a cool 34 degrees at both The County Line’s Columbia branch as well as the Russell Springs headquarters. The entire County Line coverage area looks to remain dry today, a welcome change of pace, although the Russell County forecast shows a slight chance of precipitation later this morning. The projected high for today is 46 degrees.
We wish all our readers the best today but want to give special shoutouts to those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries. Unfortunately, we do not yet know who those readers are, so help us out by sending your special dates to us. Just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get you added!
