 Join the Rolfe Readers on Monday, March 25th at 7 pm as we discuss “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney.

Every family has its problems.  But even among the most troubled, the Plumb family stands out as spectacularly dysfunctional.  Years of simmering tensions finally reach a breaking point on an unseasonably cold afternoon in New York City as Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, freshly released from rehab.  He has single-handedly endangered the Plumbs’ joint trust fund, “The Nest,” which they are months away from finally receiving.  The Plumb siblings have watched The Nest’s value soar along with the stock market and have been counting on the money to solve a number of self-inflicted problems.

From Melody’s looming college tuition for her twin teenage daughters to Jack’s secret mortgage that threatens his antique store to Bea’s overdue novel, all three siblings need Leo to make them whole.

Can Leo rescue his family and, by extension, the people they love? Or will everyone need to reimagine the futures they’ve envisioned?  Brought together as never before, Leo, Melody, Jack and Beatrice must grapple with old resentments, present-day truths, and the significant emotional and financial toll of the accident, as well as finally acknowledge the choices they have made in their own lives. 

The Nest is a story about the power of family, the possibilities of friendship, the ways we depend upon one another, and the ways we let one another down.  In this tender, entertaining, and deftly written debut, Sweeney brings a remarkable cast of characters to life to illuminate what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of time, and the fraught yet unbreakable ties we share with those we love.

Residential sidewalks need to have snow removed within 48 hours. Commercial sidewalks 24 hours after snow has ceased to fall. NO blowing of snow into the street.


  

Note to Residents for the extreme cold days approaching.

 

With this cold weather storm about to hit there's a few things you can do to keep your house warm and protect your furnace.

1: Change your filter today. 1" filters need replaced once a month on average. 4-5" filters can stretch out to 3-5 months depending on use.

2: Set your thermostat to 71* or 72*. Sounds cool but when its 32 or below outside that's still a lot warmer. You need to give your furnace a break every once in a while and keeping it set at high temps will put a lot of ware on it possibly causing it to fail.

3: Layer up. Wear long pants, long shirts, slippers and socks in the house.

4: Try to avoid opening outside doors a lot. Definitely when the furnace is on. Remember when your blower motor is going your house acts like a vacuum. As soon as you open that door in pulls all that cold air into your house.

5: Keep bedroom and bathroom doors open. The way a furnace works is that it needs to pull the air from each room through the return vents, condition it then move it out through the supply vents. If you restrict that flow by keeping doors closed you will create cold spots.

6: If you have electric heat IE heat pump and airhandler and heat is not keeping up manually switch your thermostat heat mode to emergency heat "emHeat" and contact your HVAC provider as there may be an issue with the heat pump.

7: Check your outside exhaust vent and gas meter make sure it is clear from ice and snow, to adequately vent your furnace

8: Contact your HVAC provider if you feel your furnace is not working properly or have any other concerns.

 

Also to avoid pipes freezing up, any faucet inside but attached to an exterior wall, keep cupboards open or let the faucet trickle just a little bit until the extreme cold has passed.
