Five Things you Need to Know Today is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance.
Today is Friday, December 21. Here are five things you need to know.
1. Wind and rain: According to the National Weather Service, today will be rainy with wind gusts as high as 48 mph. The high temperature will be around 50.
2. End of the world: There has been a lot of talk over the past few years that the world would end in 2012. Today is the end of the Mayan calendar, leading some to speculate the world will end on 12/21/12. If you’re reading this, either the world isn’t ending or you’re spending your final minutes reading Milton Patch, so thank you.
