There's a big winter storm coming! It's time to get ready today, as tomorrow travel will be difficult. Be sure to gather your batteries, flashlights and make sure you charge your phone tonight, so in the event that you lose power, your cell phone will still have power. Get to the store and you may want to get your Christmas tree today, if you haven't already.

Be sure to check back here on the website, as we will keep you up to date with any changes into the forecast, snowfall totals, power outages, cancellations and more. Remember to be careful tomorrow when removing the snow. Take your time!
