I certainly hope that faith-based initiatives between church and police/county will continue more along the lines of supplying needs-based services (mentoring, shelter, meals, domestic violence prevention, etc.), not just prevention of crimes against places of worship, but addressing things that prevent nuisance crimes. Of course, see something, say something.
Doesn't Dora have the cutest, fluffiest, most wide-eyed looking expression? This pretty cat is 12 years old and weighs just eight pounds. She was surrendered initially when her family was moving and couldn't take her with; they said she liked to hide from everyone, but we've found her to be a pretty social girl! She is low-key and may not walk around and actively greet everyone, but she accepts pets and really likes having company. She would love love LOVE a home with another low-key cat, preferably no dogs, and a person who will be home with her a lot. Can you give her that kind of home? Then come in and adopt Dora! ...

Unless you've been in hiding since Friday with no internet access or television, chances are pretty good you've heard we might be in for some snow. The bulk of precipitation is expected overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning. Keep an eye on the forecast and be prepared for a potentially slippery commute on Wednesday.
As with every other "storm" this winter, it'll wind up missing us and being a non-event. More of the same "much ado about nothing"..... 🙄
Will the call for unscheduled leave be decided and posted before everyone leaves for work?
Looks like you've been hiding as well....most predictions have us in the 4-6" range.....
How much snow is needed before Fairfax govt will close?
Actually haven't been hiding.. just don't watch the news or local television. Actually since I've family out of state that like watching national news / weather.. they keep me updated. 😊
Thank you for sharing.
Thank goodness, finally. I hope we get a lot of snow

Someone better hurry up and adopt Louis because we are falling hard for this big boy and may just have to keep him as our shelter mascot! He is one of the most lovable, sweet, and helpful dogs we've ever had! He's already spent a busy Saturday in our adoption office providing assistance to the public and overseeing operations, including the protection of a staff member's breakfast (although we think he had ulterior motives there...). He then went home with one of our foster families and kept a very close eye on them all weekend as they did projects around the house - just to make sure they did it right. He even helped test the couch to make sure it was big enough for his 100-pound frame.
He really is just a big love bug! This is what his foster mom had to say about him: "Louis is such an easy going dog! Loves to run in the yard, fetch balls, and explore, walks easily on a leash, knows how to sit, shake, and lay down. He very much enjoyed having the couch all to himself whenever possible, but he also loves to cuddle when he can! I hope he finds a home quickly!"
Louis is an older, distinguished boy who may prefer to be an only dog and loves being around his people so much that he would prefer not being left alone for long periods. He's just looking for a loving home to spend his golden years - preferably one with a big, comfy couch! ... See MoreSee Less
