2018-01-03 Weather Update

Drive carefully and as you feel safe.

Snow after 1am, 2 to 4 Expected. Use caution, prepare for power loss & extreme cold
Welcome to 2018!
Elsa has joined forces with snow miser to make travel tomorrow morning a horrible mess. Olaf index is saying 2 to 4 and great for snow balls but bad for driving. Use extreme caution as bridges will ice over first. I am concerned about power loss because of the extreme cold so please make sure generators are ready and used safely.
Please use caution and be safe. I will provide updated travel info at 7am. Good Luck!
