Five Things You Need To Know Today, Jan. 27
What nifty technological item was announced on this day in history?
"Five Things You Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance. Let us know what you think of the feature in the comments section.
Today is Thursday, Jan. 27. Here are five things you need to know:
- You probably already guessed it, but…: It’s snowing. Again. The white stuff started falling from the sky last night and has continued into this morning. The National Weather Service is forecasting one inch of fresh snow today, on top of all that snow we got last night.
- Parking ban: The city of Woburn has implemented a snow emergency parking ban for all city streets until Thursday at noon. There is no parking on either side of all streets until 12 p.m. For more information on storm-related items, keep checking Woburn Storm Central.
- Wherefore art thou, Romeo: The Annuniciation Greek Orthodox Church on Montvale Avenue is expected to hold its “ROMEO” event today at 10:15 a.m. The event is geared toward “retired old men eating out.” Woburn Patch isn’t sure where the guys are headed today, but it does sound like a lot of fun.
- In case you missed it: Tuesday night, the School Committee continued a discussion started by its subcommittee Monday morning regarding the future use of the Clapp School. According to neighbors, a home rule petition passed by the legislature says it can only be used for recreational purposes. But some city officials are considering the option of renting the building. Read about Monday’s and Tuesday’s discussion on Woburn Patch.
- iLove iPad: On this day in 2010, Apple announced its latest foray into the world of mobile technology—the iPad. We know it wasn’t that long ago, but it was a monumental announcement. The tablet-sized computer gives people the opportunity to access e-mail and the Internet, and play all those fun games that you can play on your iPhone or iPod on a bigger screen. Woburn Patch favorites include: Bejeweled, Bookworm and Cover Orange.
