Residents are encouraged to consider family members or neighbors with special needs and assist them in preparing for the winter weather. Remember, if it’s too cold outside for you it’s too cold outside for pets. Please bring pets inside

    They are all CLOSED at night, the coldest time.

    • Chris on January 30, 2019 at 12:36 pm

      Was thinking the same thing. They couldn’t at least keep the community centers open at night during these horribly frigid nights?

    Correct! Where are they supposed to get warm at night? If they are that bad off, how are they even supposed to get to the “warming” centers?

    • Wiggy on February 3, 2019 at 5:23 am

      If they walk there, they will stay warm while commuting to the warming center. Most of these counties have an STS or Mass Transit system. How about people stop relying on the government for everything?

  3. kathy pedersen on January 4, 2018 at 3:01 pm

    what good is this when they have no place to go at night anywhere?

    • Matt Storm on January 30, 2019 at 2:25 pm

      How about your house, after you pick them up from wherever they are?

  4. Joy Mitchell on January 30, 2019 at 1:12 pm

    Day warming centers are great. But people need a warm place to sleep at night. Maybe some school gyms or vacant office buildings.

    • Wiggy on February 3, 2019 at 5:25 am

      Good idea, or better yet, your house? Where you at?

  5. Shirley Blackwell on January 30, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    This is not good enough, they need to be able to stay overnight somewhere.

  6. Shirley Blackwell on January 30, 2019 at 8:47 pm

    This is not good enough, they need a place to go at night.
