The regional warming shelter for East Greenwich is Warwick Vets, but perhaps we can help out closer to home
I've heard from a couple of readers asking about warming shelters. The warming shelter for our region is Warwick Vets High School in Warwick. And the Community Room at the EG Police Department is available, with heat and plugs. But how about helping our out-of-power neighbors with warm food, charging stations and, perhaps, a bed for the night? If you've got power and are willing to help, consider reaching out to those you know who are dark. Maybe it's an impromtu dinner invitation or slumber party. Let's see if we can help make these next hours/days easier. Any suggestions of how to organize this effort are appreciated!

Wanda loves people but would do best as the only pet in the house.

The only good thing about the hurricane is that it looks like it's coming on a weekend and hopefully will sandwich in between the start of the work week and any school activities. However, like all acts of nature, the storm may not stick to the projections and computer models as it moves up the East Coast. Town and Fire District officials met Thursday evening for a previously scheduled joint session, but the timing was perfect for an …
