Winter Driving REMINDERS: ** Drive slowly. Everything takes longer on snow-covered roads. Accelerating, stopping, turning – nothing happens as quickly as on dry pavement. Give yourself time to maneuver by driving slowly. ** The normal dry pavement following distance of three to four seconds should be increased to eight to ten seconds. This increased margin of safety will provide the longer distance needed if you have to stop. Slow down! Stay alert! Be prepared.

Probably have heard already... but there is a Winter Weather Advisory issued for today expiring Dec 5 at 3:00 AM. Snow accumulation from 2 to 4 inches is expected with blowing wind gusting to 50 MPH. Periods of snow and blowing snow means periods of travel difficulties! BE PREPARED for the snow covered roads and limited visibility. If you must travel, make sure to let someone know your travel plans and have a charged cell phone with you. For Minnesota latest road conditions go to http://www.511mn.org/ or by calling 5-1-1.

Good advice!

The below pictured bag was found! It looks to be a Thirty-One brand. If you believe this is your bag and can identify what the contents are inside the bag, stop at the PD to pick up. Thanks! ---> If it helps, the trim is purple in color - picture isn't perfect coloring and it's the organizing back pack style from Thirty-One bags.
