1- At 3:45 am, its 4 degrees with a wind chill at -7. Personally, this type of cold can go back to the arctic and STAY THERE!! OK, drank some coffee and the MADNESS has dissipated.

2- This polar high pressure is slowly moving to the southeast and we’ll be warming back up. By Saturday, we might see some temps in the 60’s while overnight lows will be in the 20’s and 30’s. I just hope this severely cold weather will kill off some of the insects. Overall, improving conditions.

4-This winter, as you all are now aware, has been anything but normal. I ask folks to download our GARFIELD COUNTY EM app for many reasons. One of which when weather, or major incidents occur, this app will be something that you can rely upon as information comes from us. Severe information weather-wise comes directly from the NWS. Advisories come from us. Countywide emergency information will come from us. Local information from your local WARNING source.

5- We are NOT your news source; we ARE your EMERGENCY PUBLIC INFORMATION SOURCE. We will never send out false alarms. Our app will serve as that source. UPGRADES to our app are coming soon so get it now, learn how to use it, and when the upgrade comes, it won’t be difficult for you to navigate. More information soon.
