Frigid temps persist. Use caution. Snowfall continues to cover icy walks, driveways, and roads. Keep cars and generators  fueled. Do not operate generators indoors. Stay clear of fallen power lines; assume all lines are energized. Stay well clear of emergency equipment and plows. Help a neighbor. Check in on those who may need your help. Keep pets protected.

NYS' Move Over Law now protects, in addition to law enforcement officers, emergency workers, tow and service vehicle operators and other maintenance workers stopped along roadways while performing their duties. Use caution.
