*** Winter Conditions ***

Winter is here and with it winter road conditions.  As always, use care when traveling RME roads, especially on our Tupelo hill.  There are several bins with cinders placed along Tupelo Rd for use by our homeowners during slippery conditions.

*** Ticks! ***
Ticks seem to be especially bad already this year.  If you or your pets are outdoors check carefully for ticks and use repellents containing Permethrin or Picaridin.  And remember, Lyme Disease does not always present with a bullseye rash so watch for high fevers and/or unusual body aches as well.
