One thing to be careful of on Green-Up Day

Here's a warning about helping with Green-Up Day.  Be on the lookout for 2-liter bottles which may have been used to make mthamphetamines.

From email:
If you come across discarded bottles that contain a substance that does not look like the one that comes in that bottle, especially anything that looks like wet wallpaper paste, leave them alone. Due to the possibility of explosion, do not open it, kick it, or pick it up. Call the State Police (388-4919) or your local police agency and let them investigate.

The risk of fires

We're enjoying spring sun... too much sun, it turns out.  Ripton hasn't received enough rain of late, meaning there's increased risk of fire.  So take care!
