Slippery sidewalks and roads aren’t the only things to look out for this winter. Shoveling snow can be a health risk as well. Remember to stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, and only move small amounts with each shovel pass. Learn more at #WinterSafety

Sergeant Kurtz was the guest reader for “I Love to Read Month" at Neill Elementary.

The arrival of the heavier snowfall has been delayed a few hours, but it remains on track to affect the Twin Cities through the evening. Please be aware that it may be Spring-like this morning, but by the mid/late afternoon, Winter will return.

As appears to be the trend this winter, Monday is not looking like a fun-day for the commute. Please plan extra time, slow down, and allow plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you.

A snow emergency will go into effect tonight at 12:01 am. As a reminder, no on-street parking is allowed until the snow has stopped accumulating and the street has been plowed. Thank you.

More snow is on the way for the weekend, with moderate to heavy snow moving through Saturday afternoon and night. Several inches of snow will make for difficult travel Saturday afternoon-night, alter travel plans if possible.

Snow Emergency: The National Weather Service has forecasted over 1.5” inches of snow to fall in Crystal starting this evening and lasting into Friday morning. Additionally, there is significant snowfall forecasted for this weekend. In anticipation of the overnight snow accumulation exceeding 1.5” and multiple events over the next few days, City has declared a snow emergency starting at 2am Friday morning. As a reminder, during a snow emergency no on street parking is permitted until the snow has stopped accumulating and the street has been plowed edge to edge. Vehicles in violation may be ticketed and/or towed.

We have received complaints recently of drivers bypassing the metered ramp entrances and using the carpool lane with only one occupant in the car to enter HWY 100. When the lights are active, please adhere to the laws governing the carpool, bus, and motorcycle lane or you may find yourself having a face to face meeting with one of our friendly Crystal Officers. Be safe out there and respect your fellow motorists. We are all in this traffic jam together!

Monday looks like it will be interesting...will there be rain, ice or snow? This graphic explains how having different layers of warm and cold air between the clouds and the ground determines the type of precipitation that hits the ground.

Once again, snow could be impacting the commute early next week. While this is still a very fluid scenario, and it is too early for specifics in regards to amounts and timing, confidence is fairly high that an impactful wintry mixed precipitation event will unfold for Sunday through Tuesday of next week.

Mark your calendars for the next Rocco event! 🐕 Sunday, March 18th from 11am to 1 pm. $20/person See flyer for additional information.

Crews are working to repair a water main break in the middle of Douglas Drive, just north of Medicine Lake Rd. Please avoid the area if possible. At this time, it is uncertain if Douglas Dr will need to be closed or not.

Chief Revering and Hershel "Woody" Williams. Williams is the Medal of Honor recipient who flipped the coin at yesterday's Superbowl game. He served in the Battle of Iwo Jima and is the only living WWII Medal of Honor recipient.

Officer Vang and Investigator Dorr are with Osi Umenyiora, former defensive end for the NY Giants. They won the Super Bowl twice against the Patriots, so we will see if Officer Wright and his Eagles can heed Osi’s advice and get a hand up on Tom Brady!

Officer Wright was drafted in the 7th Round as the back-up kicker by the Philadelphia Eagles after the scouts saw his potential.

Cold weather can be life-threatening. If you can’t avoid being outside, remember to follow these 3 steps and tell someone where you’re going. #WinterSafety
