Kiwanis Indoor Yard Sale by Lynne Ober Although an end-of-March nor’easter

was predicted as people went to bed, it was still a surprise to get up on April 1st and see the world covered with heavy, wet snow. Mother Nature provided the perfect April Fool’s joke for those of us who believed that Old Man Winter had gone to sleep for another year. With temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, the heavy, wet snow stuck to all surfaces. Trees were caked in a trimming of snow, making the outdoors look like a fairy wonderland, but the roads were also caked,

leading to skidding accidents that clogged the roads.

Chasing Our Tails and Hudson Dog Park Fundraise for Fencing

Once again, students from pre-school through college had a snow day and working parents scrambled to care for younger children. With so many snow days this year, school districts are facing a scheduling problem. A record 35 inches of April snow fell in 1874, so this snow won’t hit the record books; however, it will be remembered as a joke from Mother Nature. Some towns had removed plows from their snowplows and were left scrambling to clean the roads. Even though snow kept falling throughout the morning and into the early afternoon, there wasn’t as much accumulation as weathermen had predicted. Although there were some

power outages, when the temperatures rose slightly above freezing during the morning hours, much of the snow hanging onto wires and tree branches began to fall and the region escaped massive loss of power.

Kids made snowmen and threw $101.13

snowballs, but everyone knew that temperatures in the coming week would bring a quick end to this April snow.

Health care designed around me means...

I don't have to rely on prescriptions.

“I was nervous about taking high-dose medications. When I talked to my doctor about my concerns, he listened carefully and we worked to develop a treatment plan that includes alternatives.” - Karen Korza, Certified Personal Trainer

Christopher Leung, MD, a gastroenterologist, was able to help Karen make safe choices about natural supplements and Karen agreed to try a low-dose medication. Now, instead of self-managing her disease, Karen and Dr. Leung monitor her progress together. Karen appreciates that she can have an open dialogue with her doctor— one that allows her to maintain a healthy lifestyle and take steps to prevent serious health complications in the future.
