Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does! [Peter J.

rest of the day, ushering in a much colder airmass which will
allow temperatures drop into the 30s. Wind chills will fall into
the teens and 20s as a result.
