***Evening Update*** Rain continues to gradually overspread the region from southwest to northeast and will continue to do so through this evening. The rain could be heavy at times overnight and while we are not expecting any widespread, major problems, localized urban and small stream flooding could occur in a few spots. The heaviest rain tapers off Wednesday morning but some showers may return by afternoon. Thursday will feature a respite with sunshine and relatively warm temperatures before the next system could bring some more rain by Friday. In the longer range, the outlook heading into next week is for mainly dry and progressively warmer weather!

Severe weather awareness week continues. Today's topic is severe thunderstorms. The definition of a severe thunderstorm is hail of 1" in diameter or larger and/or winds of at least 58 mph. The best place to be in a severe thunderstorm is inside a building. If that isn't available, a second, but not as good, option is inside a vehicle (excluding convertibles).

But what was really disgusting was the number of cases of mice and rat droppings that were found in children's classrooms and restrooms.

Good things come in trees. As many of you know, East Point Breeze Neighbors participates in the PHS : Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Street Tree planting twice a year, in November and in April. This Saturday, April 21, is the day! We, along with our friends at Newbold CDC and West Passyunk Neighbors have a total of 25 trees to stick in the ground, including 10 in the EPBN service area. We need a few more able-bodied neighbors to help dig some pits and plant some trees. If you can volunteer on Saturday morning (around 9:30am), comment here, PM us or email clean@epbneighbors.org. BONUS POINTS if you happen to have a heavy-duty digging shovel, a pick-ax or a push broom that you can bring along! This is a regular Tree Party, and as a great poet once said: After the Party is the Afterparty! All volunteers are invited for pizza and beer post-trees at Brewery ARS! NOTE - our newest neighborhood Tree-Tenders group, Point Breeze Tree Tenders is also planting trees on 21 April. Their "zone" is WEST of 18th street, so if you live closer to that side of the Breeze, give them a shout -With their trees added, we're up to almost FORTY NEW TREES! ANOTHER NOTE - The deadline for November trees is MAY 7! Too much information for this post, so watch this space next week for more info!
