Initial estimates report 6-8 inches of snowfall in our area since the storm started last night. The image below shows the prediction for what is still coming our way.
If you do not HAVE to leave your home, don't! City Crew is working diligently to clear the roads and keep up with the snowfall, but the conditions are still not great. All of our surrounding areas are the same.
If you do leave, and we cannot stress this enough, CLEAN THE SNOW FROM YOUR CAR ENTIRELY!! That little face hole you made in your windshield is NOT sufficient... ever.
We will keep everyone updated on changes as much as possible. BE SAFE! ... See MoreSee Less
