At least one-hundred people reached out to me just before and during the Ice Storm, asking if this page and the Facebook Cottage Grove Weather and Emergency Preparedness group could go active and if I can post.

As for my time, I'll continue doing this at no cost, as a service to the community.

Please keep in mind that I am a Meteorologist and work fulltime. Updates will be emailed between noon and 2:00pm -or- after 4:00pm.
