John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
We are again getting more and more snow. This winter is much more active with snow than several previous ones. Where is global warming? Our average temperature is below normal. Winter sports fans are very happy. There are more days to ice skate, sled down a hill, ski and other winter sports. To our senior population, these days are not very happy. Black ice is hidden under the snow, where you can easily slip and fall down. Please be careful when you go outside this winter. If you fall and can't get up, you could freeze and get frost bite on your body. Children going outside without mittens or gloves could also get frost bite on their hands.
Postal workers, while delivering the mail, must be always careful of not freezing their hands or feet. Cracked fingers occur very often while delivering the mail. Icey sidewalks, steps and porches cause many accidents with postal workers. Please salt icey locations to prevent accidents. Enjoy our winter as best you can.
Please support the Bay View community.
