As we all prepare for our cold winter snow storm of the season we encourage ALL residents to be prepared. A winter storm warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected. Heavy, wet snow and gusty winds could lead to power outages and difficult driving conditions. Drivers are urged to only travel in the event of an emergency.
