Looking out for One Another

Posted: March 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

Lately, as you all know, the Willamette Valley has seen some pretty strange weather.  We’ve gone from shorts and T-shirt weather, to snow and temperatures dropping below freezing.


This freak snow storm that recently passed did more than make the city sparkle with crystals of ice; it also broke trees and bushes, and caused power outages to a significant portion of the city.  Many people were still without power 2 days in.


It’s important, in times like these, for all of us to keep our eyes and ears open, looking out for one another.  With power gone, there is an increased risk of home invasions/burglaries, accidents, and the sick and elderly perishing due to the freezing  temperature.


I’m urging everyone to keep an eye out for their neighbors, especially if your neighborhood had experienced power outages.  If you haven’t seen your neighbor for a couple of days, investigate or send the police over to do a well check.


I would rather a life be  saved today than to have business next week when the power comes back on and the temperature warms up.


So, count heads, make sure everyone’s OK, and enjoy the Spring . . . when it finally gets here!
