Daily Bread for 10.12.16 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

Midweek in town will see an even chance of morning showers and a high of sixty-two.  Sunrise is 7:06 AM and sunset is 6:15 PM, for 11h 09m 25s of daytime.  The moon is a waxing gibbous with 81.7% of its visible disk illuminated.

Whitewater’s Community Development Authority will hold a housing roundtable at 8 AM, the Police and Fire Commission meets at Noon, and the CDA Board will meet at 6:30 PM.
