IT’S COLD!!! WE ARE OPEN

Its cold! We are open.  Make sure to dress warm and protect yourselves from the cold!

Here is the report the NBC4 Weather Newsdesk

nbc 4 winter advisory

Updated Storm Team 4 forecast 6:50 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 13

Snow squalls will move across North-Central Maryland, Northern Virginia and the Washington D.C. Metro this morning. Heavy snow is expected in these snow squalls and may quickly reduce visibility. A quick half-inch of snow could be expected.

Given the dangerous cold and wind, both days this weekend are Storm Team 4 Weather Alert Days.

The nasty, northwesterly winds will be the big story on Saturday with gusts over 40 mph expected through the day.

Saturday night looks dangerously cold with single digits expected. The record lows for Sunday’s date are 4 degrees in D.C., -5 at Dulles and-2 at BWI.

Sunday will only offer minor relief in the form of a lighter wind. Otherwise, the weather will still be bone-chilling with morning sunshine giving way to late-day clouds and highs again in the low-to-mid 20s. Winds chills will be below zero in the morning and teens by the afternoon.

We will turn our attention to a low pressure center as we head into Sunday night and Presidents Day. This will bring some snow showers and periods of snow to the area Presidents Day with a few inches likely.

As the storm approaches Monday night, it will tug milder air into the region, leading to a changeover to ice and, eventually rain by Tuesday morning.

MEMBERSHIP MEETING WITH LUIS MARTINEZ

It was a great membership meeting and community meal today. Preceding the meeting and meal we were fortunate to have Luis Martinez, Diversity Outreach Coordinator from Montgomery County, speak about many of the resources that Montgomery County offers its residents.

The presentation was well thought out and structured so as to maximize the efficiency of time, pertinence of information, and clarity of delivery. The center’s resource references have been updated to reflect direct helpful accurate new information to benefit members. We are thankful to Mr. Martinez for his willingness, patience, and dedication in bringing these resources to OOOMC.

OOOMC’s Executive Director Daphne Klein and OOOMC CPRS Barbara Montgomery prepared a delicious community meal featuring baked rigatoni, pulled chicken, and side salads. Many of us were hungry and left satiated.

Action Annapolis scheduled for February 25th was discussed as the main topic. We’ll advocate for On Our Own of Montgomery County, Inc. that day. During Action Annapolis several members from each of the On Our Owns speak to state representatives about issues critical to the human rights of consumers of mental health services.

We thank all of you who came to the center today for your continued support. For those that didn’t make it, we hope you will be able to attend the next membership meeting on March 5, 2016. Meetings are always on the first Saturday of the month and community meals are held monthly on the first and third Saturdays.

The coming months hold many new events, programs, speakers, and a trip to Medieval Times.
