Weather Update - - 12:30 pm. We are still experiencing only rain. The snow is expected to arrive between 1-3pm. It will take a while for the snow to stick but when it does it will be heavy, wet snow. Please be careful when you shovel. Weather forecasts have multiple ranges of snow amounts 1-3, 2-4, 3-5 inches, so we do not know exactly what to expect. In addition, wind gusts may be in the 45-60mph range - so be prepared for possible power outages.

. - DO
call 9-1-1 for any downed power lines and trees. Live power lines are very dangerous and you should not approach or touch any wires down on the ground. Treat every downed wire as a live wire.
The Town's Public Works Department has been working to clear storm drains and residents are urged to clear any storm catch basins in front of their homes that may be currently obstructed with any debris to increase water drainage from roadways. In addition, the DPW is prepared when the rain turns into a snow event. Snow Plows are ready to go!
-DO NOT attempt to drive a car through any flooded roadway. It may appear like there is not a lot of water, however it does not take a lot of water on the road to get a car stuck.
-DO charge any laptops, cellphones and any other electronic devices. Make sure to have extra batteries for flashlights and extra candles. We are anticipating power outages with this storm.
