A section of North Broad Street is closed due to a gas leak.  The road will remain closed until the gas line is repaired  -according to fire officials. https://www.journalnow.com/news/local/gas-line-under-repair-on-north-broad-street/article_85cf99ce-9d79-5d57-9263-b8ead93e0f5d.html

 

TIP: Depending on the time of year, your ceiling fan should rotate in a different direction.

Summer = Counter clockwise:  In the summer, your ceiling fan is meant to cool, so you’ll want it to push air down. This forces the airflow to hit you directly.  So, the ceiling fan should be rotating in a counter-clockwise direction.

BTW: A downward draft from a ceiling fan can make you feel up to 8 degrees cooler.

Winter = Clockwise:  In the winter, you want a warming effect, you should switch the direction of the fan to clockwise, forcing the warm air near the ceiling (remember, heat rises) back down.    https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-use-ceiling-fan/

 

Is your car approaching 100,000 miles and maybe you’re looking toward 200,000? Consider these tips to help keep your car on the road 

  • Drive calmly.Aggressive driving, hard stops and starts, and rapid accelerating or decelerating may hurt your fuel economy, and also adds unnecessary wear and tear to your car. Rough driving may somewhat mimic stop-and-go city driving, which can put extra strain on your vehicle’s suspension and engine. Curbing your need for speed may help keep your car running longer.
  • Keep it clean.A good wash will not only help your car sparkle, but it will also remove excess road debris like tar and salt. This is especially important during winter months when salt residue from wintry roads may cause undercarriage corrosion. Regular waxing helps protects the paint job and can help resist rust.
  • Don’t ignore the check engine light. Some divers can end to overlook when their, check engine lightturns on. If you have an older car, it’s especially important to get your vehicle checked out right away. It may be indicative of a serious problem with the transmission, timing belt or engine. Prompt attention can save you the headache and expense of a major problem that could’ve been resolved sooner.  https://blog.allstate.com/high-mileage-cars-200000-is-the-new-100000/
