Any information if this parade will be rescheduled due to the snow and rain tonight? Hoping it is not cancelled totally - it is such a nice event for everyone!!!

Can't imagine why they did not consider the safety of the residents...the roads are not good in the neighborhoods it is still snowing you can't stand outside. Many will miss it. Sad that they did not consider us. Next year.

P.J.: Perhaps you didn't see a plow truck at all yesterday because of the thick smoke from your neighbors' bon fire in his fire pit.
P. J. Miller December 15, 2013 at 02:57 PM
Knee Jerk: probably right. Any ideas?

Yes, you can take a picture of his bon fire on your camera and show it to the "proper authorities" so they can fine him.

Knee Jerk: Funny you should mention that. I have installed surveillance cameras outside my home and asked if I could submit that tape and was told yes! Just waiting for the BIG day! Will send you a copy? Have a good holiday!! PJ

Post your surveillance video's on YouTube so we can all have a good laugh. Especially the video's after the "proper authorities" pay your neighbor a visit and hand him that long overdue summons. The ones showing him kicking in your front door.
