Ice, Flu, and the Ivy Brick Inn

Sunday, January 13, 2013. This year's influenza is now an epidemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The January 12 post has links to resources from the CDC and National Institutes of Health:
Here in Sauk Centre, the hospital and nursing home still have restrictions on who can visit: quite sensibly, I think.

I haven't caught the flu, although my wife and some of the kids have had some sort of bug. Can't say that I feel bad about being left out.

Precipitation that apparently couldn't decide whether it was freezing rain or sleet put a nice polish on streets a few days ago. Driving in town isn't nearly as exciting, now that the street department has spread their sand-and-salt mix.

Another Christmas season, and the Knights of Columbus Nativity scene is up again. January 8, 2013.

The Ivy Brick Inn on Main Street is still in business. They're the old brick house that's attached to the now-closed Mar'cette Floral.

Ivy Brick Inn - open, definitely. January 8, 2013.

That's all I've got this week. I'm looking forward - if that's the right word - to having a tooth pulled tomorrow morning: but expect to be back with more about Sauk Centre next Sunday.
