Another Snow Storm !!

Posted on January 26, 2011

Here we go again! Another major snow storm heading our way. It seems that this winter will go down in the record books for the most snow accumalation. We can still see the snow from December 26, 2010.

With that said, please take the time to clear the accumulated snow around the fire hydrant in front of your home. This will make it easier for the fire department to locate and access the hydrant should there be a fire. Thank you for you support and cooperation.
