This is an exciting moment in the life of the Skippack Blogger. I am doing something new: Live blogging. I write my thoughts directly into the WordPress app on my brand new iPad, while I explore Skippack. Thanks to Mrs. Skippack Blogger for finding room for the iPad in our budget.
The holiday season began with a storm of activity. By early October, pre-Halloween craziness had taken hold of my family. Our children, two high-energy boys, Sean, age 9, and Keagan, age 6, weren't the only ones responsible for the commotion. My wife Melissa and I contributed to the madness. We wanted our children to have the perfect costumes, which Melissa insisted on making herself. And nothing ever seemed enough; we needed more candy, more decorations, always more. Just a couple days before Halloween, Hurricane Sandy blew into town. We discovered we were powerless; literally powerless for forty hours. But Sean and Keagan reminded us of a way to turn the holiday power back on: put the focus on helping others.

Hold tight. I am about to commit what is surely a great sin for a man who calls himself the Skippack Blogger. It is a day before August First Friday and I am not going to write about First Fridays.
Instead, I will write about the Sunday after First Friday. I miss my mark by only two...
There are two different ways to enjoy summer in Skippack Village, each is symbolic of a different approach to life itself.
The Roar of the Crowd
The town offers up its big events. Just follow the crowd.
Fourth of July Memories
The Fourth of July, already now a memory, brought cheering masses to our main street, Skippack Pike. People lined up to see born-to-be-wild motorcyclists, classic cars, flamboyant mummers, brave firefighters, marching musicians called Reilly Raiders, civic-minded business owners in clever floats, water-blasting deck washers and more – all proceeding down Skippack Pike to enthusiastic applause. The...
I arrived at the Skippack Fire Company with a question I have wanted to ask for more than two decades. When I first moved to Montgomery County, PA, more than twenty years ago, I came close, too close...
