Don’t Even Go There: Massachusetts Roads Shutting Down

From the Vermont Department of Emergency Management:

Massachusetts closing roads to traffic at 4:00 p.m. today
Vermont roads open

WATERBURY, VT – Due to the snowstorm, the state of Massachusetts will limit traffic on all roads in the Commonwealth at 4:00 p.m. today, Friday, February 8, 2013. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick issued an executive order today that listed a number of exceptions including:
Public safety vehicles
Public works vehicles
Utility company vehicles
Healthcare workers who must travel to and from work
Vehicles to maintain and deliver critical private sector services such as fuel supplies and the like
Other emergency purposes as appropriate

There are currently no reports of closed roads in Vermont and state and local road crews in Vermont are out plowing and will continue to clear roadways throughout the night. Those on Vermont roads are encouraged to drive appropriately for the conditions and slow down.

A handful of accidents have been reported in Vermont today, but few other problems have been identified due to the snow.

    It’s NOT EVEN Snowing in Woodstock!!! We better wake up to 24″ of snow tomorrow or I will never trust a weatherman again!

    Sari: Vermont was never forecast to get the honkin storm until Friday night. Two systems. Today was a peanut system from the West. The honker is coming up from South, hence a bit of a lull in the action. Since it is due to really hit NYC, Mass and Boston lotsa media there to get all excited. We have to admit a forecast down there of three feet is rather impressive and perhaps worth some excitement. WEB

    Noaa weather map about 20 min ago showed Woodstock in a very long narrow dry slot. _ you back out on the screen and it shows the “honker” beginning right… about…. NOW. (I can barely see out my window).
