THURS., MARCH 31, 2011 ~

CURRENTLY, PER WEATHER MAPS BELOW, IT LOOKS LIKE METHUEN MIGHT ESCAPE THE HEAVIEST PORTION OF LATE THURS. NITE INTO FRIDAY'S NOR'EASTER! HOPEFULLY, THE MOST WE'LL GET, SNOW-WISE, IS LESS THAN THE PREPOSED 5-6 MAXIMUM INCHES! THIS PENDING STORM REMAINS QUITE SERIOUS; AS WITH MOST SPRING SNOWSTORMS, HEAVY WET SNOW CAN WRECK REAL HAVOC ON UTILITIES AND PROPERTY! THOSE LIVING IN THE DESIGNATED WINTER ADVISORY AREAS OF THE NORTHEAST REGION, SHOULD TAKE ALL NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS AND STOCK UP ON ESSENTIAL SUPPLIES IN CASE OF ANY POSSIBLE POWER OUTAGES, ETC.
