Montgomery Locals, Jan. 23, 2019

By Staff | Jan 24, 2019

Old man winter officially came to Montgomery this past weekend! Thankfully the snowfalls weren’t quite as bad as they might have been, but it was enough to keep most everybody within the confines of their own yards. It was initially predicted that power outages might happen, but thankfully we were spared that!

Most of the churches cancelled their Sunday services and Virtuoso Junior postponed their play. Route 54 was temporarily closed when a large tree came down and blocked both lanes. Thanks to the borough for keeping the snow plow running and our emergency responders for always being ready to assist the town when these big weather events strike.

Thankfully we have Facebook to refer to, as most people in town are quick to get on and post warnings about slippery roads and bad conditions. But don’t forget about the Montgomery Emergency Management webpage that has a snow camera, and the Montgomery Borough website that provides a list of snow removal services (and some provide their rates).

I’m hoping this will be the last storm of the year, but in reality it probably won’t be. So remember to keep flashlights and batteries handy, along with snow shovels and ice scrapers.
