Weekly Summary: 1/9/17 - 1/13/17

After a weekend of temps that never climbed out of the teens, construction workers finally got a break on Thursday, January 12th when Boone reached an incredible high of 64 degrees!  But the cold weather earlier in the week didn't prevent intrepid construction workers from setting up tents and pouring concrete, taking "cold weather curing" precautions. (See photo.)
