Get out today and tomorrow and get your errands done. Enjoy a full day at work or school – as many have not for awhile! Today will be cold, just in the mid 20’s but no more precipitation is expected. Later this week however, specifically Wednesday into Thursday, may be a different story. Take in an art gallery today, learn to knit, just enjoy a walk around the City or stop in at one of many cafés along your way.
Valentine’s Day is this week already! Score twice with Flowers by Paulette! You could win a trip to the NBA Playoffs.

The florist offers same day delivery on most bouquets. It is a Teleflora shop, making your out of town deliveries smoother as well. The shop, located at 258 North Queen Street, is open today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
