This Sunday marked a noteworthy date in Kiowa County weather history. December 29, 2006, 28 inches of snow fell at Sheridan Lake in a 24-hour period. That is the record one-day snowfall for the county. This is also the record for a two-day snowfall.

The most snow to ever fall in Kiowa County in a three-day time span was 32 inches at Haswell November 5, 1946.

Can you believe December is here already and Christmas will be here before we know it? I can blame the fast passing of time on old age - what's your excuse?

My brother Doug would have been 71 years old today, December 1. Doesn't seem possible he's been gone for 33 years this coming January 2020.

We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner and visiting at the home of my sister, Jerene, and her husband, Ian DeBono. Other guests were Chad DeBono of Lamar and Jason, Gina, Dexter and Jett Dechant of Kit Carson.
