December 22, 2009: We got hit with a lot of snow December 18 & 19, somewhere between 15 and 18 inches, but the streets of Shinnston were clear for traffic Saturday. Public Works started plowing Friday and kept up with the snow all day Saturday. At 11 PM Saturday night they were loading that plowed snow into the City dump truck and taking it to an area of City property where it will not cause a problem. Sunday morning they were clearing snow away from the Volunteer Fire Department, Library, and Police Station. The Public Works employees of the City of Shinnston are to be commended. We are fortunate to have such dedicated workers.

 Meanwhile we have enough snow on the rail-trail for cross-country skiing. And anyone booking in to the Gillum house Bed & Breakfast for 2-consecutive nights in the month of January will receive a bonus of $20 in Jimmy’s Diner Dollars (available only at the Gillum House Bed & Breakfast). Come visit our Winter Wonderland – the covered bridges and winery are open……
