Today is Wednesday, Dec. 26. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Dry: Wednesday is forecasted to be a dry day with increasing clouds throughout the day with a high temperature in the mid-30s.
2. Trash: Trash pickup will be delayed by one day for the rest of the week because of Christmas Day on Tuesday. That means if your typical pickup day in Wenham is Tuesday you’ll be getting pickup this morning – Wednesday. And if you typically get pickup on Wednesday in Hamilton, make sure your recycling, organics and blue bags are out there on Thursday morning.
3. Snowstorm: Do you remember this day two years ago? Yes, it was the first big storm that delivered about a foot of snow to the two towns in what would be an unbelievable start to a month-long streak of snowstorm after snowstorm that ended up being one of the snowiest winters on the North Shore in a while. It also helped the town of Wenham come up with a more formal method for closing Wenham Town Hall for inclement weather.
4. Kwanzaa: Monday marks the first day of Kwanzaa, a weeklong holiday that celebrates African culture and traditions. It began in 1966 and runs Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 each year.
5. Unemployment: Town-by-town unemployment data for November will be released by the state Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development on Wednesday. The statewide rate in November was 6.6 percent, unchanged from a month earlier.
