Winter Weather Awareness

It is that time of year again to think about winter weather. Last week was winter awareness week. So far, we have only had a few flurries and snow showers, but soon it will be much more significant. There are no major storms on the horizon, but as we head into winter now is the time to prepare.

I am sure many of you have gotten your snowblowers tuned up and our ready. For the rest of you, get moving. You may have heard that the winter is expected to be above normal for temperatures. That does not mean we won’t have plenty of snow to worry about.

We average right around 50 inches of snow per season and I would think we will be a lot closer to that than the 100 inches we had last season. Make sure your tires are ready for the season and that you have the proper amount of antifreeze in your radiator.

A few changes have been made to advisories and warnings this winter season by the national weather service. I have included a link so you can see the changes for yourself. It is an easier format for everyone to understand. Have a great week and stay warm.
