Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks – March 10-12

The big news for this weekend continues to be the power outages caused by Wednesday’s wind storm. Also this weekend, is the time change. It completely snuck up on me this year. I didn’t realize it was on Sunday until I saw it on a sign during our Jiffy Factory Tour on Wednesday.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - March 10-12

This week proved to be quite an interesting week. I was on call for jury duty, but never had to report. Beyond that, the week proved quite interesting. We had a power outage early in the week. Then, Wednesday was a half-day and the wind storm developed. We managed to keep power through the storm. If you don’t have power, please stay safe and warm. For Friday’s events, I am also going to highlight some activities for kids who are home from school due to power outages.

Free Morning Movies

Quality 16’s Free Matinees this weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 10a) is Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. I took my daughter and a friend to see the movie last fall and they really enjoyed it

Girl Scout Cookie Booths

After two weekends running Girl Scout Cookie Booths, we’re taking a break this week – but there will still be plenty of booths around to get your cookie “fix”.

Movies

Kong: Skull Island opens this weekend. I haven’t seen it, but my daughter expressed interest based on the commercials. She’s still disappointed she doesn’t get to see Logan, the new Wolverine movie which is rated R. Family friendly movies include The LEGO Batman Movie (which we loved), Rock Dog, Hidden Figures, and Sing which are still in theaters. My daughter’s class took a field trip to see Hidden Figures a couple of weeks ago. She said the movie was very good.
