January may be exiting in a flurry of white stuff,but Chincoteague Island is a great place to weather a storm, so come on down! Make sure you stock up at Wine, Cheese and more before you dig in and of course pick up some books and tunes at Sundial Books.
Let's see what Evelyn Shotwell at the Chamber has for us if we decide to venture out.
Good morning all,
Are you ready for the snowy weekend? Been to the grocery store? Got plenty of snack food and movies? Sounds like a good weekend to snuggle up with a good book or movie! If you do happen to get “out & about”, here are a few things to enjoy. Listen to local radio and TV stations for cancellations or postponements or call the sponsors before you head out the door just in case plans have changed.
I plan to have my first snow cream of the season!!! Can’t wait….
