Etters a mostly rural area in York County, is located across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania State Capital.  As early as 1838 a post office was established at Henry Etter's tavern.  Henry Etter became the first post master.  It is believed this is where the post office, located in Goldsboro, got its name.  (Information obtained from Goldsboro post office documents.)

Thankful for the half an inch of rain today (Thursday)!  Wasn't anticipated a few days ago, so always nice when you get an unexpected bonus.  Needed more but still good...

Looks like a trip back to summer this weekend, as around 80 expected. Nice!  It will be cold soon enough...enjoy the warmth.
