Can you help? On the night of Monday January 26, 2015 the Davis family suffered from a house fire that has altered their lives. The house was burned to the ground leaving a family of five homeless (children ages of: 6, 10, and 13). They have lost all furniture, clothes, perishables and personal prized possessions. The Davis family is most grateful and thankful to God that they were able to escape without anyone being harmed.

The storm has moved further east and will be departing faster than our forecasts of the past two days. The result is a much more manageable than expected snow event, at least in our area. The worst of the snow this morning should be in NJ where untreated surfaces are slippery with areas of snow and blowing snow.
