Good morning, Andover! Here's your daily rundown of everything happening in town for Saturday, Dec. 31, courtesy of Andover News.

A.M. Briefing

2 things to know today:
  1. I'll be holding publisher's office hours next Thursday, Jan. 5, from 9:15 to 11 a.m. at Town Market Andover (429 South Main Street). This is a chance to drop in, say hello, ask questions, make suggestions or register complaints. Just look for a big bald guy buried in a laptop. I plan to hold office hours monthly going forward, and I'll mix up the times and locations to make sure anyone in town who wants to pop in has a chance. Event details on Facebook.
  2. I've added some more events to the New Year's Eve Things To Do post.
Weather: Cloudy this morning, high of 55. 6% chance of rain this morning, continuing tonight. Rainfall up to a quarter-inch. Cloudy tomorrow morning, some clearing as the day progresses. High of 55. Clear skies Sunday night with a low of 32. Partly cloudy Monday with a high of 48 (Weather Channel).
