Good morning Selby!
As we recover from a little taste of what we are expecting this weekend, here is a little update.
First, thank you to Jay Scott for the road conditions report!! It is incredibly helpful to know what the roads are like before we venture out. You'll definitely be needed to let us know how things are going as you're plowing this weekend! Please safely stay in touch.
As you may have expected, our 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off will be postponed until the following weekend, 30 January from 4pm to 6pm. Please keep signing up!!!! This gives everyone additional time to sign up so we can plan our space!!
We have a large nor'easter heading our way this weekend with a potential of 1-2 feet of snow. We are currently under a Blizzard Watch meaning that along with heavy bands of snow, we will be expecting very high winds. We may even have some thundersnow which is too cool! These conditions are extremely dangerous. I encourage everyone to prepare now so that when the storm arrives, folks are not jumping on the roads. Please leave the roads open to the emergency crews, plows and utility companies.
Now is the time to check snow blowers, generators and get salt and shovels. Top off the gas in your vehicles and make sure you have plenty of window washing fluid. Please check on elderly neighbors and neighbors with young children to make sure that have prescriptions, supplies, heat, food and such for the weekend. Please bring in animals ~ cats and dogs. Animals should NOT have to be outside during this storm. Check batteries for flashlights and bring up any firewood that you may need. The stores are emptying quick!
With so much snow on the way, there will be a mass digging out when everything is said and done on Sunday. PLEASE help out your neighbors. This is a great opportunity for our Selby youth to earn a few bucks. I will post a picture of two kids walking with shovels in the snow. Please post all comments for either wanting to be shoveled out OR wanting to shovel someone out. If you are reading this message on a forum other than Facebook, then please email SelbyBay@gmail.com and you will be added to the Facebook thread for those looking for snow removal. If we keep everyone on one thread, then it will be easier to match everyone up and folks can contact each other as they see fit.
I believe that is it. I will be posting weather reports regularly on Facebook as they come in with any new information. Hang in there and I guess we'll have winter after all!

* 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off
We had a great showing last year and I would love to have that again this year. Unfortunately, we have not a single person signed up for Saturday!!! PLEASE...for planning purposes...if you are planning to enter a chili...PLEASE...go to the sign up genius and sign up OR you may email SelbyBay@gmail.com. Either way, it would help us A LOT!!
* Kayak Rack
There are still quite a few kayaks on the Kayak Rack. We generally ask folks to remove their kayaks by 1 November. Any remaining kayaks on the rack by the end of January will become property of the SCA.
* Neighborhood Speeds
Please be reminded to slow down when driving through the community. There are school kids out in the mornings and afternoons and many folks walk at night. Please set down those phones and pay attention. There is a streetlight out at 5th and Selby. Please be careful in that area. It's really dark.
* It's Getting Cold!
Temperatures will be taking a dive tonight. The Southern District Police Station is an official warming center and will open it's community room up to folks to need a warm place to stay. The police station is located at 35 Stepney's Lane. Please be sure to check on your elderly neighbors and please bring in those animals!!! Also, watch for frozen water bowls.
That's about it for this week. Have a great week!!
