Just saw on FB that they cancelled school in Milford?

Hi Shannon, Yes, the superintendent told me he sent out an Alert Now message. Story is now on the site. Several other districts are expected to do the same. He said he was most concerned about the afternoon buses, and road conditions at that time.

When I was a kid, I had to walk fifty miles each way to school and back home.Through snow, rain, hurricanes. Plus, I didn't have shoes. There were no school cancellations back then. These kids need to toughen up.

yeah, well my dad didn't have snow boots, so they just duct taped barbed wire to their shoes ;)

anyone know if they're canceling trash/recycling for tomorrow?
Mary MacDonald (Editor) October 28, 2012 at 11:54 PM
I don't know, but the storm isn't supposed to be too bad in the a.m. and so far I haven't heard of any town offices (except the senior center) being closed Monday.
Jennifer October 28, 2012 at 11:59 PM

Milford Man >>>When I was a kid, "I had to walk fifty miles each way to school and back home.Through snow, rain, hurricanes. Plus, I didn't have shoes. There were no school cancellations back then. These kids need to toughen up". Wow, can you imagine having to walk from Milford to Salem to get to school??? That must have been really tough! Ah, er, that don't seem right....no, it can't be....it's not right.....just another blogger full of hot air! Couldn't just state how it really was....had to exaggerate by about 48 miles.....no wonder you don't carry any credibility!

The minute todays public safety agent allows someone to get hurt when they didn't have to is the Month they get fired. Yeah yeah yeah, they way it was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mary MacDonald (Editor) October 29, 2012 at 12:32 AM
I will! I don't have the health agent's cell number. I called the wrong guy: for what it's worth, leaves are going to be collected Monday until it gets too windy! (reached the highway commissioner - I forgot they don't deal with garbage)
Mary MacDonald (Editor) October 29, 2012 at 01:22 AM
Milford Town Library and Milford Senior Center are closed tomorrow... I have not heard anything about Milford Town Hall offices, however.

Tony - lighten up. I think he was joking!
Milford Senior Man October 29, 2012 at 01:37 PM
Thanks Cheryl, of course I'm joking. Tony is always angry.
