I don't usually even go out for New Years Eve, but I will go to a gathering this evening and my designated driver will be in tow.  I won't likely drink very much anyways, but it is better to be safe, rather than sorry.  Enjoy your New Year my friend!

Roy, this is a very important message, especially for tonight. Our area is lucky to have the SoberRide program. There is just no excuse to drink and drive.

Hi Roy Kelley - We never go out New Year's Eve, however we have friends visiting and thought we would go for an early dinner. We are getting heavy snow right now, already an inch in less than an hour!  So we will have to see...

Roy, I stayed home last night, it is SOOOO cold.   It is -2 this morning, with snow.   Have not heard how many were arrested, but would be easy to call someone if you were drinking and needed to get home.  Happy New Year!
