The roads and driving conditions are currently hazardous with numerous accidents, and fender-benders. The picture with this article is not indicative of how risky the driving actually is .

My wife pulled over at her parents' place in Whitehall on the way home to south Baldwin from downtown (12:45 p.m.). She had gotten stuck numerous times and felt that it wasn't safe to keep driving.

Please everyone stay safe out there. No need to rush anywhere (unless you have urba durba and need to get to a bathroom fast). Thank you for your coverage, Robert. You are a super journalist and I appreciate all that you do. I will pray to Baby Jesus for safe travels for all today. It is probably a good thing that it is snowing like it is. Uncle Helix told me he was going out and getting “weird” tonight…..I hope he stays in.

Schools will begin dismissing early. This message is probably on Patch somewhere, but here it is again: Due to the poor weather conditions this afternoon, the Baldwin Whitehall School District will begin the dismissal procedures a few minutes early in an effort to get all students home safely and on time. Baldwin High School will begin dismissal for all bus riders at 2:10 p.m. St. Gabriel’s will begin about 2:20 p.m. Harrison Middle School will begin dismissal at 2:45 p.m. The district elementary schools will begin at approximately 3:30 p.m. Dismissal times will depend on the time that buses are able to make it to each of the schools. Our goal is to start the process a bit early at the upper grade levels to avoid delays later in the bus schedule. It is important that students arrive home to a caring adult and have access to their homes. If parents experience their own difficulties getting home from work, school, etc. – please call the school office at least 15 minutes prior to the above stated dismissal times to arrange for you to pick your child up directly at the school. Staff members will be on hand to supervise children until you are able to get to the school.
