Neighborhood Buzz: Granby & East Granby's Snowstorm Chatter

What are you up to in this storm? We've created a space to chat in, sort of like a virtual coffee shop!

The kids are home from school. The snow is super heavy — and, if you're like me, the idea of shoveling it is not really all that appealing right now. 

Or maybe you and your dog have ventured out, like Mr. Bojangles did. I've always thought there was a shortage of your pet pictures on Patch. Want to help me change that?

Or maybe you're sitting in the comfort of our homes, staring out at the beautiful snow wondering what's going on out there in town. 

Is my favorite bagel shop open? Is my elderly neighbor up the street OK, or does anyone need a helping hand from a neighbor? Has your road been plowed yet?

Because one of the things we like to do at Patch is connect neighbors and help people out, we've created this space for everyone to weigh in ... a community forum, if you will.

And don't feel limited to the questions above. Maybe you are making something awesome to eat and you want to share what it is with everyone. Perhaps you are looking for ideas of activities to do with your kids today, or just have to tell everyone about an awesome movie that's on TV.

So, what's going on with you and your neighborhood?

I took the snow blower and cleared a double wide path to the woods for my dog. For some reason he prefers to run around in the deep snow. Crazy dog !!! Just like a child he prefers to play in the snow rather than keeping dry on the path. He's large enough that he won't get lost in the snow. He is 1/2 Black Lab and 1/2 Tree Walker Coon hound

Does anybody know if there was a manager fired at the town dpw department? I heard something this morning but not sure if it was Granby or not.

Just watched the wfsb news and saw that gasoline was stolen from the dpw and somebody resigned? I just caught a glimpse of it and it was hard to hear it while my collie was yapping. Is the news clip online?
