The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory, whether we like it or not.  It was sixty degrees three days ago and now it is going to snow, but then again it is February.   Just be safe and smart, the roads will be a slushy mess, and still a little hazardous.  Don’t forget to wear boots when you are outside, my sneakers just don’t cut it in wet snow.  We will keep you updated but this is just a regular old snow/rain storm, not a big deal.  Schools have yet to cancel.
