Facilities monitors weather forecasts on a daily basis through the “snow season” starting in November and ending in April. Snow plans are developed and tailored to each individual snow and ice event.

Tips for Winter Weather
  • Shuffle your feet rather than picking them up and putting them down. You are much less likely to slip.
  • Wear appropriate footwear
  • Understand that slippery conditions can last well after the end of the storm. Remain cautious!
  • Keep a portable shovel, cat litter or salt, and battery cables in your vehicle.
  • Avoid snow removal equipment. Visibility is limited and operators may not see you!
  • Avoid trying to move your vehicle until the snow event ends. Roads may not be passable.
