Check on friends, neighbors as cold continues

We all know someone in our neighborhood who is vulnerable when the days turn cold. Sometimes it is an elderly friend or colleague, or it is a family struggling to make ends meet. More and more, we come upon hard cases where people might need help but are too proud to ask for it.

At a minimum, we all need to do our part to look after one another when subzero temperatures pose a danger to people and property.

The forecast for the next week or so appears to be unyielding, with arctic air passing over the Northeast.

And it’s still December.

Looking out for one another is not asking too much. In fact, it may be one of the easiest things we can do to extend kindness and be a bit more neighborly.
