Okay you're not going want to hear this and please do not commit harry-carry by falling on your snow shovels.
We’re just not quite there yet. We are still dealing with ice layered packed-snow on many Harbour roads but the 4WD's are heating up the road a little and the sun will soon be doing its thing. Unfortunately we’re not expecting a big improvement today and the meet the candidates tonight has been canceled.
A reminder, even if you are in a 4WD, you have to adjust your speed for ice. 15mph tops. People in 4WD’s are still driving too fast.
Tomorrow is expected to be big the melt with temps in the mid 40’s and we can all finally start getting back to normal, though I will be very surprised if schools reopen this week.
The good news is we caught a lot breaks this storm:
Trees down – 0
Power Outages – 0
Injuries – 0
The police volunteers assisted with storm preparation - covered the phones at the Command Post for 4 days -pulled out or pushed 17 stuck vehicles and assisted officers with at least a dozen more -Provided 16 transports for emergency workers & gate staff - covered 5 hours at the Gate when we were short guards due to impassable roads - found a woman in her driveway who had fallen in the snow and was unable to get up - cleared 14 driveways for the elderly and are clearing more today-cleared the police station lot and cleaned the station and provided food for the officers.
Neighbors really came through for each other, sharing resources, checking on the elderly, helping clear each other’s driveways and we had 10 residents with 4WDs helping us with transports.
We have also confirmed that once you are able to get out - Rt. 1, Rt. 610 and I95 are clear and that the Rt. 610 Wawa does have fuel. Please make sure you have completely cleaned off your cars.
Thank you for you cooperation through-out this historic storm. 99% of you did exactly what we needed you to do. Please forgive my grouchiness. Like you, as the roads get better, so will my disposition. J
If anyone is shoveling for hire or shoveling out of the goodness of your hearts today we have a lot of people still looking for help. Please call 659-4600 to speak with the volunteer coordinator.
