6:15 pm
3-inches of snow at the max. and i think that's not very much. we can't survive with the snowplows for day. >> we have a fire. there's not whole lot you can do about that. >> reporter: in speaking speaking to the administrator he made it clear although obviously a fire wasn't something they planned for, they appreciate the residents understanding. >> and, you know, hopefully we'll debt through this as quickly as we can. surrounding counties have stepped up and offed support to hopewell and the residents seem to understand that now really isn't the time to complain but for all of us regardless of the area if the snow does come, be safe and take your time. who knows what challenges are being dealt with and we're not even aware of. >> all right. >> good point. good thank you, bill. let's get back to the fox 29 winter wet authority. i like snow but i am just -- >> enough. >> ready to move john. >> ready for spring.
