TODAY'S THOUGHT

For most of us, God hasn't become our happiness. We, therefore, pray to procure things for our happiness, and not to know him better.

Winter's recent blast in our region has left behind slippery surfaces, blocked streets and walkways, and snow/ice making it hazardous for letter carriers to deliver mail and packages. Post Offices in the region are open. All available mail is sent out for delivery each day and carriers are doing their best to deliver where possible. Some delays may be unavoidable, but customers can help.

Letter carriers are advised to use good judgment when attempting to deliver to addresses where ice and snow are not cleared. They are not allowed to dismount from their vehicles to deliver when the approach to the mailbox is blocked or hazardous because of snow or ice.

Some tips:

- Customers are asked to clear enough snow from curbside boxes so the carrier may approach, deliver the mail and leave without danger or backing the vehicle.

- Walkways need to be cleared so as to allow enough traction to avoid slips, trips and falls.

- Steps – especially painted wood -- must be kept clear of ice and snow and in good repair.

There are several things to consider after 40 plus inches of snow falls in a month's time. Shoveling, deicing and regular maintenance are always on the top of many lists. However, the Minot Fire Department is urging homeowners to take a few more steps to ensure personal and public safety.

Those actions are as follows:



· Removing the snow from the gas meter to your house so that it is accessible in case of an emergency. The extra weight of the snow and ice that collects on the gas meter may break the meter releasing natural gas.

· Removal of snow from around your high efficiency furnace exhaust and intakes that vent through the siding.

· Ensure that you have a working carbon monoxide detectors.

· Make sure roof sewer vents are clear of snow and ice.

· Remove snow from around fire hydrants.

The Fire Department has already responded to numerous incidents involving the gas meter being sheared off or disconnected due to the weight of snow and ice. Taking a moment to clear excess snow from this area may avoid such situations.

Meanwhile, removing the snow from around high efficiency furnace vents will help prevent Carbon monoxide from being drawn into your house. In the event of a plugged furnace vent it's important to ensure that carbon monoxide detectors are working and not expired. Most detectors have an end of service life listed on the back of the detector.

When checking roof sewer vents it is recommend to be done safely from the ground. If a vent looks frozen or covered in snow, the best decision would be to contact a professional.

Finally, clearing a three foot by three foot area around a fire hydrant would allow a timely response for firefighters in the event of an actual fire.

Home owners can learn more about these tips and other safety tips at the National Fire Protection Association link on the Minot Fire Department's webpage on the City of Minot's website, minotnd.org.

Recent severe winter storms across the U.S. have put additional pressure on the nation's blood supply, which is already trying to recover from low donor turnout over the holidays. With heavy rain and areas of flooding in the west to high winds, record snow, avalanches and ice across large portions of the rest of the country, the number of people able to come out and give blood is significantly impacted in many parts of the country. And yet the need for blood remains.

United Blood Services has seen a decrease in donors over the past several weeks as snow and ice conditions have impacted road conditions across the region. Between No Travel Advisories and travel restrictions, people being stuck in their homes for days on end, and other weather-related issues, UBS has struggled to meet the needs of the region.

All blood types are welcome with type O-negative most urgently needed. O-negative is the universal blood type and can be given to patients of any blood type. It is often used for premature infants and in emergency situations when there is no time to type and crossmatch the patient. Hawkins said platelet donors are needed as well. Platelets are used in the treatment of patients undergoing chemotherapy. Their shelf life is very short—only 5 days—while whole blood or red cell donations can last 42 days.

Donors are encouraged to make appointments online at www.bloodhero.org or by calling (877)827-4376. To see a list of donor center hours and locations, go to www.bloodhero.org.

Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 and 17 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian. For more information, visit www.bloodhero.org

Blood donation takes about an hour from check-in to refreshments. Donors can save about 20 minutes by completing their Fast Track Health History the day they donate. It's at www.bloodhero.org.

Please join us on Friday, February 3rd from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. for Coffee with a Cop. The Minot Police Department, partnering with the Barnes and Noble Café at Dakota Square Mall (1500 10th St SW), is hosting Coffee with a Cop. This event was scheduled after the Minot Police Department participated in the first National Coffee with a Cop day this past October. Several community members who attended this event eagerly requested more Coffee with a Cop, events be scheduled. Deputies from the Ward County Sheriff's Office will also be participating in this event.

Coffee with a Cop is a law enforcement community outreach program which was started by the Hawthorne (California) Police Department in 2011 in response to tensions between the police and that community. In five years these events have been hosted in all fifty states and expanded internationally to Canada, Europe, Australia and Africa.

This event is agenda free, no speeches or specific topics; just informal conversations about what matters to community residents. This is a time for relaxed and approachable conversations focused on problem solving, all over a cup of coffee.

The Minot Police Department and community enjoy a historically cooperative relationship. Our participation in this event is intended to build upon this already excellent relationship and offer an opportunity for the community to informally connect with our officers. Additional information about the program nationwide can be found at coffeewithacop.com.
