Letter From the president: Dogs, owners anticipating thaw

Snowmageddon has descended upon Memphis once again, and I didn’t even bother going to the store. I’m more worried about getting my dogs to go outside to pee than I am about making French toast. At least that’s what I assume everyone is doing when they buy up all the milk, eggs, and bread when storm warnings are broadcast.

My dogs hate ice and snow, and if it is cold and icy long enough they will start looking throughout the house for a place to relieve themselves. They start by staring longingly out the dog door, then nervously pacing the kitchen floor, and finally using the shag throw rug in the hallway as their personal potty. It never fails. And I can’t even catch them in the act because, unlike seemingly almost every one that I know, I had to actually drive to work in this icy crap.

Needless to say, I could use a distraction from the wintery weather, and luckily, there are plenty of projects going in in CY to do just that. In the next few weeks, details will emerge about the new alley project, the crime grant project, and the Safety Shindig! Our growing committees have been busy as bees lately, and it’s not too late to join them and help make a difference in your community. — June Hurt
