5 Things You Need to Know Today: Feb. 8

Make sure you park your car off the streets tonight, to allow snow plows to plow.

Our weekday morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.

1. A reminder that Milford streets need to be cleared of cars overnight to allow plows to do their jobs. The parking ban is in effect. Police have had cars that blocked plows towed in lesser storms. Move all cars off-road.

2. Did you know this blizzard has a name? The Weather Channel is calling it NEMO, leading to many jokes on Twitter and Facebook about finding it.

3. Speaking of social media, the Milford Police Department has a Twitter page and a Facebook page, for people who follow their news over the next day or so via social media.

4. Many stores and businesses in Milford will be closed Friday, or will close early. PiNZ is closed all day, reopening on Saturday, for example. Visit this post to see the updated announcements today, and let the editor know if you are closing by sending an email to mary.macdonald@patch.com, or by leaving a comment on this post.
