Chicken Rescued from Snow Bank

Why did the chicken cross the road? To be rescued by Officer Difava apparently.

Last night around 7pm the Somerville Police received a call about a "chicken stuck in a snow bank" by the shaw's employee parking lot off of Elm St. Officer Difava bravely jumped into action and saved the chicken from certain peril. You just can't make this stuff up!

 

SNOW EMERGENCY LIFTED

SOMERVILLE SNOW EMERGENCY LIFTED AS OF TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH AT 8 P.M.; SOMERVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OPEN WEDNESDAY

Somerville will lift its snow emergency as of 8 p.m., Tuesday, February 12, 2013.   Residents parked in municipal or school lots during the snow emergency will have a two-hour window starting at that time in which to move their vehicles.  Cars still parked in City lots at 10 p.m. may be subject to ticketing and towing. 

Please also note that Somerville Public Schools will be OPEN on Wednesday, February 13th.

 

SNOW EMERGENCY BACK IN EFFECT

SNOW EMERGENCY BACK IN EFFECT, until further notice. SCHOOLS CLOSED THROUGH WEDNESDAY: Due to high snow accumulations and ongoing work to clear public streets and walkways—and the forecast for more potential snow events this week, the City’s snow emergency will REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Residents may continue to park in municipal or school lots until the snow emergency is lifted. Trash and recycling pickup schedules will continue as normal this week. DPW and contracted crews will continue to clear snow around-the-clock over the next week, including removing high snow banks that impair visibility, as well as at bus stops and crosswalks. To ensure the safety of all residents, particularly children, school has been canceled through Wednesday. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to ensure safety and accessibility throughout the City.
