Bread and Milk Days in the Forecast

We have revised our list of places where we post weather-related delays or cancellations. The new list can be found below. Keep in mind that we have to manually enter information (or speak with someone at some of these locations), so postings do not occur simultaneously. We will try to post announcements in the order listed below, although busy signals, downed lines, software problems and other issues may cause the order to change at any particular time.
