Today, a Winter Weather Advisory predicts ICE accumulations of around two tenths of an inch, with highest amounts along the I-70 corridor. We will probably get some snow but the major concern is the FREEZING RAIN that starts around 4 PM and into the evening - during the time of our commute, before & after church, making travel hazardous.
BFWC always considers FIRST, the safety of our people who are traveling to & from service; SECOND, the timing of snow/weather and how it impacts the roads, our parking lot & our ability to clear walkways/parking lots in a timely manner, etc.; THIRD, we can move snow but we cannot melt ice...which is the most hazardous.
It's challenging to make a decision about cancelling a service/event when we cannot control how the weather timeline will impact our travel & safety. However, we want to make an informed decision about tonight's service that gives families time to plan accordingly, based on weather predictions.
We will be cancelling service this evening.
FYI: In the event that BFWC cancels a service, you can expect to find cancellation information on the following:
