Unto the Populace of Northshield doth Kenricsend greetings, as autumn recedes and winter takes hold--The snow has already flown, and the days andnights are both cold. Please pack for your trips accordingly, and even for theshorter trips, carry winter clothing, as you never know when you might getstuck en route, and have to spend time outside your vehicle. For longer trips,an emergency kit, including a snow shovel, may keep a situation from turningfrom an amusing anecdote to a perilous encounter. No matter the season, buteven more so in winter, be prepared when traveling.
