Studio weather update

As of 3:00 Thursday, November 20th it is clear skies, and even sightings of blue skies here and there. Roads are clear and well plowed.

Looks bright towards the lake and grey skies to the south of us.

All classes are still on as scheduled. Please note the actual Library portion of the building will not open today to sign out books or to use computers.

Please remember we do not use local school or library closings to determine the dance Studio's closings.

As Always
Drive Safe!

ALL CLASSES ON FOR TODAY THURSDAY 20th

ALL CLASSES ARE ON AS SCHEDULED. 

WE ARE PLANNING ON HOLDING ALL CLASSES TODAY. PLEASE USE YOUR BEST JUDGEMENT WHEN VENTURING OUT.

ROADS IN THE CITY ARE SNOW PLOWED AND CLEAR. HOWEVER, THAT COULD ALL CHANGE. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO COME TO CLASS WE UNDERSTAND, MIGHT BE A HIT AND MISS DAY WITH THE WEATHER. IN THE CITY IT IS CLEAR AT THE MOMENT, TIME WILL TELL AS THE DAY GOES ON WHAT MOTHER NATURE HAS PLANNED FOR US.

THANK YOU,
JOANNE

ALL CLASSES ON AS SCHEDULED - WEDNESDAY

TODAY IS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19th,  the current conditions in Watertown are good, sunny and bright, however as we all know that can change quickly.

We will be holding all classes today. When the time comes to leave for YOUR class and if the conditions have worsen or change please use your best judgement depending on where you are coming from. It is hard to predict the weather hour to hour, your safety is our first concern. I'm also at the studio from 1:00 to 9:00 , so during this time frame it may be good one hour and not the next.

During our lovely winter weather season and not so predictable lake effect snow, we will all have to learn to make our own driving decisions, basically if I can get to the studio I'll be there. The main issue at the studio is the blowing wind, which can easily turn even a sunny day into white out conditions. (like yesterday with 48 mph wind)

Drive safely,
Joanne


The actual Library portion of the building (where you sign out books and use computers) will not be opening today. Don't let the Library closings confuse you. We do not follow school closings or the Library's closing to determine the studio's decisions to stay open or to close. We try to hold classes whenever possible. Thank you!
