Winter Weather Update: Are you Ready For Snow?
Regardless of how the weather unfolds, this is a great opportunity to be prepared just in case, and to remind everyone to let common sense be your guide if the snow starts to fall:
If it’s storming out and there’s snow on the roads, stay home if at all possible. Give the hard working road crews a chance to do their jobs.
Be prepared for being stuck at home for up to a week or so, and be ready for extended power outages. This is just basic island living 101. This is doubly true for those living on hills, at higher elevations, and far from town.
Keep an eye on neighbors, family, and friends who might need an extra hand. Taking care of each other is the island way.
Don’t call 911 to report power outages or check on road conditions. The OPALCO crews are amazing, and will be out working at the first sign of an outage. Refresh yourself on how to report or stay updated on outages at: https://www.opalco.com/outages/
