SNOW! Concerns and Reminders


I have heard just about everything imaginable for this storm that is coming tomorrow. 1 to 2 inches, 12 inches, 40 inches, ugh!! It's enough to make you want to pull your hair out!

Anyway, Andy wanted me to be sure to send out our concerns and/or reminders.....

Get your shopping done ASAP, and have anything you need to be prepared to be stuck for at most a couple days. Because like last time... our roads maybe open but Irish Hill and Lexington Mill may not be.

As far as we know we are still planning the Super Bowl party!

And Jim wanted you guys to know there is no worries about snow on your roofs, they are built to hold 30 pounds per square inch (whatever that means, hee hee).... I'm guessing that's a whole lot of snow though : )

Be careful out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got this email from a gentlemen over at Kent County:
