A ‘Winter Warm-Up’ was more than the relatively mild temperatures in the second half of this week. This was the scene as “The Great Winter Warm-Up” was underway at the Freeman Community Center Saturday morning, Jan. 25.
If it's Tuesday, it's garbage collection day in Freeman and the truck was on its route on the west side of town. The municipal service includes weekly collections - half the town on Tuesdays and the other half on Fridays.
This was the scene in Freeman Friday, Jan. 17, and you can only imagine what it looked like in the country. Snow and windy conditions made for a full-on winter storm, which impacted travel and other outdoor activities considerably.
