Ask It Basket: Snow Day?

Q: How can I find out if my meeting is cancelled because of snow?
A: We suggest meetings have discussions about meeting closings well before the winter months arrive. many of the groups in the metrowest intergroup follow city and town snow emergency guidelines and/or school closings. for example, if the meeting is in Needham, and there is snow emergency (no street parking), or if there are school cancellations (or after-school events) there would be no meeting. Above all, please be safe on the roads. and don‚Äôt eat. ūüėČ
