When preparing for holiday travel, some folks make detailed to-do lists so they won't leave anything important behind. Gifts? Check. Christmas cookies? Check. Ugly holiday sweater? Check.
If you plan to celebrate the season away from home, you might consider adding a few other items to that checklist to keep your property safe. Don't let the would-be Grinches lurking in the shadows spoil your Christmas. Good locks, simple precautions, neighborly alertness, and common sense can prevent most property crimes.

The iconic line from the movie "Titanic" is "fatberg, right ahead!"
Wait, what?
Sorry, the line was actually about an iceberg. But "fatbergs" are real and can put a fat hole in a utility's maintenance and operations budget, not to mention causing significant impacts to water quality and the environment from sewer overflows. Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) - along with flushable and non-flushable rags and wipes - merge in our sewers to form solid, immovable blockages known in our business as fatbergs. They are worse in the winter months when cooler temperatures make it easier for the FOG to solidify.
