  • The Chappaqua Fire Department, along with the Town of New Castle, have sent out notices directing people to dig out their fire hydrants. This is meant to help make firefighting on site easier.

Friday Announcements (First Published Feb. 8):

  • New Castle Police have sent out a Nixle alert advising people to stay off of the roads if their travel is not necessary. The slippery condition of the roads is cited.
  • New Castle has declared a state of emergency, the town announced. It runs for 48 hours, from noon on Friday until noon on Sunday. This means that vehicles cannot be parked or left unattended on streets, or else they can be towed.
  • Mount Kisco has issued a snow emergency, effective from 12:01 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday morning. This means that people cannot use on-street parking. The village announced that the following parking lots are available as free alternatives: Dakin, Blackeby, East Hyatt, Maple Avenue, South Moger, North Moger and Village Centre. Additionally, Leonard Park and the Fox Senior Center (198 Carpenter Ave.) will also have free parking.
  • Snow was coming down fast on Friday morning, quickly sticking to the ground. However, folks could be seen out and about.
  • Meanwhile, Chappaqua schools were on an early dismissal Friday morning due to the weather. Buses could be seen gathering early at various schools. The Bedford Central School District, meanwhile, chose not to have school at all on Friday.
