With the effect of El Nino being felt, there will be plenty of opportunities this winter to head out for some snow play. Authorities have issued some reminders about how to have a safe snow day, especially in areas with designed 'snow play' areas.
Start out the New Year with a resolution to have a good old-fashioned breakfast once a month in La Grange. The Odd Fellows of LaFayette Historical Lodge #65 remind you of their monthly breakfast, always on the second Sunday at the IOOF Hall in downtown La Grange. Sunday, Jan. 10 is the date this month. They're open early, 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., with a menu of biscuits and gravy, sausage, ham and cheese omelets and French toast. Complimentary coffee and orange juice round out the meal, all for $6.
The winter months are the perfect time for a trip to the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, taking advantage of rainy weather days to enjoy some unique artwork. The museum currently has a couple of new and ongoing exhibits for local art enthusiasts.
