Over the past week, the talk of the town has been the winter blizzard that is set to hit tonight. Rumor is that Pennsylvania will get about 18 inches of snow, and have wind and snow drift. Schools are letting out early. Shopping center shelves are emptying out. People are taking precautions and you should be doing the same!

With repeated blizzards and winter storms dumping feet of snow on most of us, we are concerned that some of our neighbors may need help in raking the snow off their roofs or keeping their driveways and walkways cleared of snow. More concerning, there are increasing reports of carbon monoxide poisoning due to vents and chimneys blocked with snow. Please make sure to check in on any neighbors, particularly those who are living alone and may not be able to keep up with the snow removal or afford to hire someone to do it for them.
