Dear Neighbors,

Looks as if a cold snap is heading our way. If so, please AVOID FROZEN PIPES by going to the lowest faucet in the house (usually in the cellar) and running a constant trickle of water until the cold snap passes. It should keep the pipes from freezing. In case of power OUTAGES or other BGE emergences, please call 1-877-778-2222 or visit www.BGE.com. The more calls received from a neighborhood, the better BGE can pinpoint the problem. As many affected neighbors as possible should call. Please also call our 14th district city hall office at 410-396-4814 to let us know of the problems reported so we can follow-up on your behalf. Even if after hours or on weekends, we will access these office calls remotely. Finally, please call or email me: 443-676-6187 cell and marypat.clarke@baltimorecity.gov. Be safe.

Stay warm. Check-in on elderly and frail neighbors. Thanks, Mary Pat
