In North Adams the Blue Spruce tourist home offered rooms while in the Drury section of Florida we associate another color with longtime family business Brown's Garage: Hazel Hancock of North Adams
3.  Near the Adams/North Adams line the Orange Squeeze Bottling Co. on Howland Avenue in the Zylonite section produced many favorite flavors.  A tie between Peggy Oleskiewicz of Williamstown and Marilyn and Ed Wojieck of Adams.
The above-mentioned winners received prizes generously donated by Wild Oats, Walmart, Pedrin's Dairy Bar, North Adams Museum of History and Science, Chee's Restaurant, Freight Yard Pub, Boston Seafoods, Planet Fitness, North Adams MoviePlex 8, and Big Y.

Messy Mix of Ice, Rain, Snow Expected Monday Night

Staff ReportsiBerkshires Staff

The Berkshires missed any messy commute on Monday but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods. More sleet and freezing are on the way.

Forecasters over the weekend had warned of possible icy conditions on Monday morning that slipped on by us. However, there's a winter weather advisory in effect for Monday into Tuesday at 10 a.m. for freezing drizzle that could start by the afternoon.

"Areas of freezing rain after sunset will gradually turn to sleet and snow after midnight," cautions the National Weather Service's Albany, N.Y., bureau. "Total snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations of around one-10th of an inch."

Accuweather says a storm will be battering the eastern seaboard while an icy mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow will be falling Monday night over the Berkshires and eastern New York and Southern Vermont.
