Meeker Locals

After a soggy week of rain in the valley, the snow on the Flat Tops will hopefully improve hunting success in the area. Long-range weather forecasts predict warmer-than-average temperatures for the first half of the winter with above normal precipitation for the northwest corner of the state.
Happy Halloween to all the tricksters and treaters who will be out and about this weekend.
