Here it is …

snow fall

It’s arrived; started last night just before seven and the kazillions of snowflakes have brought the feared “snowmageddon” revered by the storm trooper fearmongers and their doppler devices.

So what to d0?

Hunker down … enjoy the solitude and count your blessing if you’ve got food, shelter, electricity, a book and some friends and neighbors.

SNOW CLOSINGS

Hinkle’s will be CLOSED ALL DAY TODAY (Saturday, January 23rd) due to the snow. Stay safe & stay home.

FOX43-TV has a special COLUMBIA REPORT – probably for updates on the new 441 bypass project

No mail today

With the threat of heavy snow in the forecast this weekend, keep the numbers below handy in the event you lose power.

PPL Electric Utilities:
1-800-342-5775

Met-Ed:
1-888-544-4877

Keep in mind that 9-1-1 is NOT the number to call to report an outage! – FOX-43-TV

  1. NO MAIL TODAY – What happened to that old adage “Neither rain, snow, sleet, etc., will keep the postman from delivering the mail?”

  2. That was then … this is now … and then ain’t coming back!

    Sorry, Rich, but it’s a modern, nicer, more politically correct world.

    Oh, found this “Postal Service Mission and “Motto” here:

  3. Thanks, Brian, I really like Dr. Charles W. Eliot’s quote. Of course I would not expect the postal carriers to deliver in what seems to have amounted to 31.5 inches of snow in the York, PA, area. After all, I didn’t even venture out until yesterday, when it took a long time to shovel out my car. I’m no longer snowbound!
