Via 4MR Market, here’s this week’s update

The parking lot is all dug out, much of the snow on the 4MR Park plaza has melted, and we’re an indoor market anyway, so come on back for our unexpected grand re-snowpening!

You definitely don’t expect to see a storm like Jonas too often, so hopefully that will be our last weather induced closing of the year! This will be a great weekend to come out to 4MR Winter Market!

Bagel Uprising will be there so you can get your first good bagel in weeks!Homestead Farm will be back with winter produce!  Captain Xander will be back with sustainably caught Alaskan sockeye salmon! And on top of that, new crafter Red Fish Rue Fish will be there for the first time to bring you her unique and sometimes geeky jewelry pieces, custom buttons, prints, and microart!

You’ll also find bread fresh from the oven (Second Rising), Amish cheeses, eggs, yogurt, and other goodies (Tom’s Amish Cheese), hand blended teas (Whole Health), fresh baked Bulgarian treats (Savory N’ Sweet), and several other great vendors there this Sunday!

It should be a great market, so come on back out… the weather’s fine!

Via AAA, severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous for automobile travel. Motorists should know the safety rules for dealing with winter road emergencies.

Remember these tips…

  • Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks.
  • Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
  • Make certain your tires are properly inflated.
  • Never mix radial tires with other tire types.
  • Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up.
  • If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather.
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand).
  • Always look and steer where you want to go.
  • Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.

The issue covers Winter fire safety tips, run statistics for the department, AFD’s engagement in the Alexandria, Virginia community, and more. Check it out at the link above.
