Sunday 14th

Has been sleeting hard all day I thought from the appearance of yesterday that we would have bare roads but it froze hard during the night and we will still have sleighing. Went to Church and SSchool. Had no visitors to day on account of the roughness of the day. We generally have some of our Mt Forest friends down on the Sabbath. (I don't like it)
