If you’ve notice there isn’t much local news from Rippey, it must be because there isn’t much!  The locals are all concentrating on keeping warm and healthy, and some have left or are planning to leave this frozen tundra! It won’t be long, though, before the bike riders will show up and again try to convince us that winter isn’t so bad!
