We could be in for a messy Monday as snow may mix or change to freezing rain overnight. More about the storm alert can be found here:
We know many of our neighbors, especially the elderly and those with disabilities, often get stuck in their homes during these snow events and need our help with snow shoveling. If you or anyone you know needing such help, please feel free to give me a call (301-659-6295) or email me at Also, if you’d like to volunteer in this, please let me know. The experience you’ll get is very rewarding. Thanks to you all who have reached out to me already.
