COTTONWOOD Palm Sunday was yesterday so that means next Sunday is Easter. There is an old saying, “If you get your palm in dry, you will get your hay in dry.” So it was nice and sunny yesterday all day until evening when it rained very hard. So I guess if you haul your hay in the daylight, you will be okay. Happy Easter to everyone.
