Area Closures

KVIA has released a list of area closures due to weather along with links to school district sites. Also keep an eye on the City of El Paso and on El Paso County.

If the weather gets below 20°, then the City does not pick-up the recycling bins. The Director of Environmental Services, Ellen Smyth, explains: “The trucks are hard to start (hydraulics) so we start late and only get trash.” To keep track of the temperatures, I’ve added the Weather Bug widget to our Newman Park blog.  It’s at the top of the right hand column.

By the way, check out Recycle El Paso and Environmental Services. Good information and tips.

Email me your snow photos please. They can be shared on our blog page.

Finally, please note that a Chihuahua is not in the punch line:

Vaya con Dios!
