Traphill had a low temperature of 23.3 degrees on March 3 and a high temperature of 71.9 degrees on March 9. There was a dusting of snow with .4 rain in the first storm and 2 inches of snow with .9 rain in the second storm during the week of March 3-9 in Traphill. The power outage on Friday made us realize just how much we depend on electricity and how much we miss when it’s not there.
