View this video to see what county roads looked like during our last blizzard. It was just a few weeks ago when blizzard conditions left hundeds of cars and drivers stranded on Adams County roads. Please pay special attention to the forecast this time around, especially if you plan to travel on county roads east of Sable Blvd. These roads are exposed to high winds and are likely to look a lot like the images from a few weeks ago. Please be safe and help our crews keep the roads clear.
