This Christmas season’s chilly climate was a bark breaker. In 1928, Early County had An identical chilly spell.
That is how the 1928 Writer Fleming commented.
By way of the current extreme chilly spell, which finaled for Greater than an odd size of time right here in South west Georgia, we have been put To various discomfort and annoyance from frozen water pipes, bursted car radiators And a lot of completely different issues, which for the time triggered us To overlook The numerous good outcomes of such a siege of climate.
