First the cold, then some warming

You'd be wrong to suppose that Sue Peacock is wearing shorts and tooling around town in in her brown UPS truck with the doors open this week.

The deliverywoman known around town as "UPS Sue" is pretty hardy, but she draws the line when teperatures dip into the 30s--and lower.

"When it's this cold, I shut the doors and crank up the heat," Peacock said on a recent afternoon.

Pioneer Market's Theresa Spiers enjoys the chilly weather, she says.

"They call me the town's unoffficial weatherman," she joked from her station near the store's main entrance. But when it gets cold, she just bundles up.

"I like this spot," Spiers said of her post by the front door. "I like to be able to see outside. There're the fall colors, the springtime green and, sometimes, a snowflake."

The county's dusting on Thursday will likely be the last snow the county sees for a week or so, the National Weather Service said on Jan. 11.

By the latter half of next week, around Friday, Jan. 18, temperatures may venture slightly above normal across the region, forecasters said.
