This has been a rough time for so many. Here in Ohio we've been lucky to only know power outages. In other parts of the country, many have lost their homes and more. If you would like to take a look at the disaster relief organizations to assist them financially, take a look at these links:
Of course, here at home we can do our part to help with the clean up. Call on your neighbors and make sure they are OK. See if an elderly neighbor might need a helping hand with the clean up or repairs.
If you have big sticks in your yard, the city will be coming around to pick them up. Remember not to leave sticks in the piles of leaves as this will jam the equipment and slow down the leaf pick up.
Let's all help each other and thank our civic workers when you see them!
