PHOTO OF THE DAY: MONDAY MORNING MESS
Thoughts of spring took a step back as a new workweek began thanks to a rain/snow mix that marked Sunday and Monday morning. Locally, rain that began falling turned to snow late Sunday night night and left around 4 inches — and it was heavy. As a result, NorthWestern Energy was out Monday morning tending to a number of power outages around town; here, workers are pictured at the corner of Cherry and Seventh streets, where large downed branches lay on the side of the road. School was canceled Monday at both Freeman Academy and Freeman Public; Menno was off anyway.
