PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW WILL CAUSE
TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS AND LIMITED
VISIBILITIES, AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.

WHILE THE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ON THE LIGHTER SIDE,
THE COMBINATION OF THE VERY COLD CONDITIONS, FALLING SNOW AND
TIMING SHOULD HAVE A GREATER IMPACT ON THE LATE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING COMMUTE. DRIVE AT A SLOWER SPEED AND USE EXTRA CAUTION,
ESPECIALLY WHEN TRAVELING ON BRIDGES AND OTHER ELEVATED SURFACES
AS THEY TEND TO BECOME EVEN MORE SLIPPERY.

Be safe and smart out there.  We will keep you updated with conditions as fast and as best we can.  Today (thursday) was not too bad considering the coating we received.  The early morning was the worst, I took Alan with me to report conditions on our DSF Facebook page ….  See you on the beach.

Fish On!!
