The warm weather this past week took it’s toll on the plowed roads and parking areas.

We got 6 plus inches on Friday night but 41 degrees for a low just turned the new snow into slush when driven over or plowed.

The forecast highs for the comming week won’t help the plowed roads, they all will all be down to dirt.
