Hi everyone! Hope you’re all ready for today’s storm. I just wanted to let you know that all of our storm coverage will be on a special blog, so check that instead of here throughout the weekend. Of course, if something big, non-Irene related happens in Spotsy, I’ll put it up here.
Also, a reminder from the people who will be staffing the fire and rescue stations this weekend: Don’t go out if you don’t need to. And, during the earthquake calls to Spotsy’s 911 more than doubled. I’m sure they spiked during Thursday’s storm. Absolutely call 911 if you have an emergency. But if you don’t, don’t tie up the lines and resources. We’ll be providing you with resources throughout the weekend, and the Irene blog already has numbers to call if your power goes out.
And, if anything newsworthy happens where you are in Spotsy, please let me know. I’ll be monitoring the storm (hopefully from the comfort of my home for most of today). You can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Twitter @SpotsyNews. I will also check my phone messages periodically: 540/735-1973.
