With just nine days before Christmas arrives, this is likely one of the most busiest weeks of the year for families, parents and obviously those slaving away at the North Pole.
So to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun programs, important meetings and events happening in West Islip Patch offers up our week-ahead guide.
Baby It’s Time to Bundle Up
The cold front that hit late last week and the weekend promises to continue, according to weather.com, which predicts mostly sunny days this week with snow possible on Tuesday. While daytime temps are expected to be mid to high 30s and even hit 41 on Thursday, nights will be chilly and likely below freezing.
What’s Ahead on Patch
Gift ideas for the last minute shopper, updates on community issues and concerns as well as the weekly crime blotter are on tap for Patch this week. If you’ve got any fun photos of the snow send it in for our gallery and if you want to share a worst/best gift story, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re also looking to do a list of reader New Year resolutions in a week or so, so share those as well.
