While it hasn't snowed much yet, chances are we'll see the white stuff flying at some point soon.

Here are some great resources on how to deal with the snow when it comes our way: 

Snow Resources for Different Communities

If you live in Ann Arbor, check out a2gov.org/snow for all sorts of snow-related resources and to track snow plows in real time.

If you live in Ypsi, you can go here to check out the rules for sidewalk snow removal.

If you live in a Township, check out the Washtenaw Road Commission website for general info on snow removal.

Snow and the Bus

If you are a regular bus rider, keep in mind that if your bus stop has a mound of snow in front of it, you should wait to board your bus at the nearest cleared area (such as a driveway).
