Let's just say this, I have a lot of friends that are always saying how they can't stand the cold weather and can't wait for those warm summer days again. I don't say I disagree because I am a summer person I will say. But let's take a moment to appreciate what we have in the winter here in the Baystate.

Ice Fishing is a big sport especially in the wintertime. Like the Sixth Annual Fishing Derby put on by the Cheshire Fire Department coming up on Sunday February 12th!
