Most of us will be enjoying an longer than expected weekend as the anticipated snow has already forced most, if not all, county schools to close for the day. Many businesses too are closing or having modified hours. The forecast is now calling for eight to 12 inches for the Lancaster area. Allow yourself extra time this morning to grab breakfast at Lancaster Central Market! This afternoon, allot extra time for the anticipated inclement weather and potential slick roads.
The School District of Lancaster had already scheduled an in service day today so the weather is not affecting the students. Lancaster Country Day School, which is now closed, will reschedule Richard Guerry’s presentation. The date is not yet known. Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is also closed today, Franklin & Marshall College and Thaddeus Stevens College are closed today. Lancaster Historical Society, known as LancasterHistory.org, is also closed in anticipation of the storm.
Lancaster Central Market is open already this morning. It is scheduled open until 4 p.m.
