This weekend’s storm has just started, but cancellations have already begun to come in. See details below.
11 a.m. Sunday: The town sent out a reminder that the Snow Emergency is still in effect, and cars should not be parked on the street. They could be towed.
You’ll have to wait to get your books, DVDs and music – the Watertown Free Public Library is closed today.
Saturday Evening: Gov. Charlie Baker said people should enjoy their Valentine’s Day evening, but advised people to avoid hitting the road on Sunday, but did not issue a travel ban, according to WHDH.
“I can’t say this enough,” said Baker. “Unless you have a really good reason to be out tomorrow, we urge you all to stay off the roads so the crews can do the work they need to do.”
The MBTA announced that the blizzard will cancel service on Sunday. Officials released the following on their storm webpage mbta.com/winter.
“Due to the impending blizzard conditions, all MBTA services will be suspended Sunday, February 15th. There will be no Subway, Trolley, Commuter Rail, THE RIDE, Bus, or Ferry service the entire day.”
A number of Watertown churches have cancelled services on Sunday. According to WCVB, the Armenian Memorial, St. James Armenian and St. Stephen Armenian churches will be closed Sunday. Also, Church of the Good Shepherd moved its services to Saturday (see below).
12 p.m.: The Church of the Good Shepherd has moved up its services thus weekend.
The church sent out the following announcement:
So….We are moving our Sunday service to Saturday! Please join us, if you are able, TOMORROW, SATURDAY, FEB. 14 at 4 pm. We will have a one-hour Eucharist. Stay after for tea and cookies if you are able or head home to hunker down.
Parking is tricky because of the snow. Consider offering someone a ride — or asking for a ride — and if the walk is not a hardship, think about parking in the High School parking lot.
If you are on the rota for this Sunday, please let Pastor Amy know whether you can make it at this new time.
