What's the beef - where's the snow?

Yesterday morning when Ridley Parkers looked out their windows, one of the things on everybody's mind was "where's the snow?" A nor-easter had been predicted to slam-us overnight and by morning's light, the most snow we could see was a couple inch dusting and an eight or ten inch snow drift; a… Continue

Mother Nature's duality - beautiful snow killing Ridley Park's trees & shrubs

If you're a gardener, you know the duality of Mother Nature's ways; hot opposite cold, light opposite dark and creation opposite destruction. With the beauty of her impressive winter storms this week, the heavy weight of her snow has been an unfolding tragedy for many of Ridley Park's evergreen trees, shrubs and bushes.

If we're counting the number of downed big limbs, then the loss of big evergreen limbs in ABC field would begin to count over… Continue

Fire Hydrants


If you have a fire hydrant on your property or your neighbor does, please do the fire department and ultimately yourself, and dig out the hydrant. This highly unusual amount of snow makes access to hydrants difficult. When doing your digging out please do not bury the hydrants. Remember the hydrants are there to protect your homes and your lives, if we have dificulty in getting to a hydrant precious time is lost.

be towed.

A Blanket Of Snow

The one thing I find remarkable about snow is the beauty and contrast of it against the bright blue, almost blinding sky afterwards. The snow itself casts a monochromatic veil over a landscape, deadening every sound, including the wind. It covers all scars upon the land and adds elegance to even the most rusted, distorted structures. It's really quite remarkable how nature, seemingly bothered by our indifference to her daily efforts, decides she wants us to see the landscape once again as she… Continue
