365 things to do in Worcester County - see nature's devastation in Southbridge.  Last Wednesday started out like many other days.  It was warm and pleasant and I went about my business.  I even made my appointment in Sturbridge on time.  I greeted the home owners at 4:00 pm and by 5:30 pm all of us knew that this was no ordinary thunder storm.  While I was visiting and discussing their home, the skies turned pitch dark as though it was night and it began to rain.  We lost power and as the skies lightened, I decided that it was a good time to make "a run" for it and quickly said my goodbyes.  Since I live in Holden, I was traveling away from the storm but the skies opened up and deluged my passage.  As the lightning bolts zoomed on either side of me, my car hydroplaned all the way home. ...

My Car Yearns for Big Bunny Car Wash in Southbridge MA     New England's seasons are tough on cars.  In the winter, cars have to travel through storms of snow, salt, and sand.  Spring is rain, mud, and pollen season.  Summer often brings a drought, so cars seem to be baked in the sun.  And in the fall, leaves and sap stick to the car's surface. Luckily, we have nearby the Big Bunny Dunk N Foam It Car Wash, located on Route 131 in Southbridge, MA.  Big Bunny Car Wash is one of the best deals around.  It offers both an automatic drive-through wash, and do-it-yourself bays for those who like to do it themselves.            The automatic car wash starts at only $6 for a basic wash.  This is an amazing value for Massachusetts.  If you go with one of the more deluxe packages, you may pay $10 ...

RMV MOVING BACK TO SOUTHBRIDGE (01550) The Registry of Motor Vehicles closed up next to Big Bunny in Southbridge last August and reopened in Charlton off the Mass Pike.  There has been much controversy as to why the move took place and how safe it really was.  I, for one, really didn't like the people turning on a busy 4 lane road to get into the RMV in Charlton.  It wasn't safe at all.  After a 8-1 vote on Monday, June 28th, a 10 year lease was approved to bring a new branch of the RMV into the Casaubon Senior Center on Larochelle Way.  The Senior Center is moving to the Community Center on Chestnut Street within 30 days.  You can look for the new RMV location to be open within the next 60 days. The Express RMV in Southbridge will offer limited services leaving the driving and licensin...
