Hello CFGB Community –
We plan to remain open this evening. Although we follow the Anne Arundel School system – in this case – we have decided to remain open. Please exercise caution, if you do decide to travel this evening. The national weather service issued the following advisory:
… WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 9 PM EST THIS EVENING… * WHAT… A WINTRY MIX WITH FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET IS EXPECTED. THE ICE WILL RESULT IN VERY SLIPPERY CONDITIONS ON SIDEWALKS, ROADS AND BRIDGES. A LIGHT GLAZE OF ICE IS EXPECTED. * WHERE… THE WASHINGTON DC METROPOLITAN AREA, AND NORTHERN PIEDMONT AND CENTRAL FOOTHILLS OF VIRGINIA. * WHEN… FROM 3 PM TO 9 PM EST MONDAY. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS… EVEN IF AIR TEMPERATURES RISE ABOVE FREEZING, THE GROUND AND OTHER SURFACES ARE STILL EXTREMELY COLD DUE TO THE RECENT ARCTIC BLAST. THIS INCREASES THE LIKELIHOOD OF A GLAZE OF ICE ON SURFACES. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF FREEZING RAIN WILL CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS. SLOW DOWN AN D USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING. THE LATEST ROAD CONDITIONS FOR THE STATE YOU ARE CALLING FROM CAN BE OBTAINED BY CALLING 5 1 1.
In the event that conditions worsen — making it difficult for our coaches to make it safely to the gym — we will have Open Gym instead of classes this evening (I’ll be here until 8 PM regardless). However, we are currently planning a regular schedule this evening.
