And: 12" FRESH POW & DUMPING!
@m.k.owen *loves* deep pow. Don’t tell him today’s powfest (which he missed) may have been even better than his deep turns in February.
Mayor Steve Dobosh sought and received the approval of the City Council Monday to support a County-wide Transportation District. The Transportation Improvement Conference takes place 10:00 a.m. Friday, April 6, 2018, to vote on whether the conference would like to ask the Lewis County Board of County Commissioners to expand the county’s transportation district.
