Lossing Ave. like all the other main roads on the Point in Colonial Beach is hard to navigate when two cars traveling in opposite directions meet.
Route 205 in Colonial Beach has been kept pretty clear since Friday evening, however the intersection of Rt. 205 and Colonial Ave has kept a good layer of slush which will most likely turn to ice as the sun sets. Caution should be used at this and all intersections around the beach.
The main streets on the point - Irving, Lossing, Bancroft, Marshall and Monroe Bay Ave. - have been plowed to one lane but remain with at least three inches of packed snow and slush mix which will most likely turn to ice this evening. Streets running across the point from east to west are not plowed. Use extreme caution traveling on the River side of Irving Ave. as conditions are very icy on that side. Avoid Irving and Monroe Bay Ave. whenever possible till the snow stops and these roads are clear.
Streets running from north to south through the numbered streets have been plowed as well, however other than First Street the other numbered streets have not been plowed. Snow continues to build on these streets and traffic adds to the bad conditions packing snow and turning it into slush as the sun melts it. Expect icy conditions on the numbered streets after sundown.
It’s unlikely this resident has to worry about outsiders parking here now.
Radar shows clearing but a low pressure just off the coast is circulating moist weather back our way. If you can avoid going out it is advised that you stay in. If you must go out be courteous to others by not traveling down unplowed roads making it difficult for residents on those street to travel when they really need to.
Remember when traveling in snow or when you use your windshield wipers it is required by law to use your head lights. Be safe and warm this weekend.
