Please check your e-mail; or the ACC homepage at:; or Facebook; or Twitter; or your local television or radio station for possible additional schedule changes.

Someone told me this afternoon to make hot chocolate by the gallons this winter. They were so right! Cozy up again with that flannel blanket, your terry-cloth robe, and sweatpants, ‘cuz you’ll want them all tonight! I’ll be back in touch with you in the early morning.

Take care and warm best wishes,
