In all seriousness, this is the time to use the reverse 911 phone system to inform and advise residents instead of all the other unnecessary times its been used. This message should have been sent after the phone message and not before it and it should have also been used to tell residents to avoid placing leaves in the street before the heavy rains. And what about the people who don't read The Patch, how are they suppose to see this notice?

The additional debris on our streets is a serious concern. Are we not able to organize ourselves sufficiently to go door to door and tell our own neighbors that they must move those leaves into bags, into their garages or simply just away from storm sewers? Robo dialing is good, but what about simple civic participation? How about Scout troops taking this on, houses of worship or other groups just getting up and doing it! If we cannot rise to the occasion of ridding our streets of leaves, then we are really a pathetic lot.

As the rain and wind hit us over the predicted 3 day storm, infront of the high school sits a mountain of dirt from the work on the field. It is a very short distance from the river. As the water rises what is being done to prevent it from being washed into the river and forming a dam and causing flooding to the area homes?

Oh, don't get me started. Our governing bodies cannot control the storm but individuals can control their own response. Just a suggestion, if you have elderly, homebound and/or solo neighbors, give them a call, knock on their door. They may need help prepping property, groceries, water, medical needs. If you are able, help those without resources and physical abilities.
