Be prepared-As upstate New Yorkers - we all know about snow. We all know that people who should know better, sometimes forget that just a little bit of snow can make for dangerous conditions.  

Remember, if you don't NEED to go out, don't. Try to get your car off the road to help the plow operators with unobstructed passage.
