Not again ...

Someone needs to tell Mother Nature that April Fool's is only one day in April and not the whole month.  

Just a reminder, the winter parking ban is no longer in effect however please help the plow drivers and avoid parking on the streets.   Between the freezing rain and heavy snow predicted, please take your time getting to your destination if you have to travel this weekend or even if you are running errands.   

Be safe and try to enjoy the weekend!
