What's New This Week

It's the end of February, and with spring on its way, as you must've noticed by now, the snow in Whyville is almost all gone. A few bouts of unexpectedly strong rain this last week have not only washed away much of the snow, but have also left Whyville in a bit of a muddy mess.

The ever-entrepreneurial Projectile Shoppe is capitalizing on all this, getting into the market of selling mudballs, as snowballs are rapidly going out of season.

You might want to be similarly forward-thinking and buy some rain gear (just in at Akbar's). These spring rains can be so unpredictable!

Also new this week are more tools for protecting ourselves against rude or annoying Whyvillians whose paths we do occasionally cross. We can now decide to block Y-mail from that certain someone, or even to silence him permanently.

Simply add this person to your address book, flip to the page where you see his picture, and place a checkmark where it says "Silence so-and-so" or "Block mail from so-and-so". You'll NEVER have to hear from this person again! Or at least until you change your mind.

So check out your new tools and use them wisely. They are in your address book, which is newly relocated to your satchel for your added convenience.
