Winter storm heading our way

A winter storm warning is in effect for Monroe and Wayne Counties for Friday until Saturday morning.

Snow is expected to start small early Friday, becoming heavier throughout the afternoon and into the night.

By Saturday morning, there could be anywhere between eight to 12 inches of snow north of the Thruway and four to eight inches south of the Thruway.

Travel is expected to be especially difficult on Friday night.

The City of Rochester says crews and plowing contractors will be working around the clock.

In case of power outages, RG&E and NYSEG say they have emergency planners ready but still advise having battery powered flashlights on hand.

Meet Brandy!

Brandy is a one-year-old Beagle mix who was found as a stray and then transferred to Lollypop Farm.

This little girl weighs in at just 16 pounds, and has a pretty brown and white coat. She came to us in November of last year but was a bit under the weather and stayed in a foster home while she got better. Now she has a clean bill of health and is ready to find a new home! Brandy is very sweet and friendly - she loves people and attention, and she also likes to bury her toys. We recommend that Brandy go to a home with children 6+ and she must meet any dogs already living in the household to make sure everyone will get along. If you’re looking for a wonderful dog that will fit right into your family, come meet Brandy at Lollypop Farm in Fairport.

 To find out more about Brandy, call 223-1330 or visit her at Lollypop Farm at 99 Victor Rd., Fairport 14450. Chloe, our "Friday's Friend" from last week, has been adopted!Meet Brandy!
