It is advised to walk carefully on snowy, icy, walkways.

Some roads may be closed, due to the slippery conditions.

If you must drive:

Please drive slowly, don’t travel alone; take water, blankets, and a cell phone, keep others informed of your schedule; stay on main roads if possible and avoid back road shortcuts.
