Fayette County has announced that all public schools will be closed on February 12 & 13 due to the horrible weather. Don't try to go to school.

No School On January 30, 2014 in Fayette Country



At approximately 2:45 p.m. on Jan. 29, 2014 the Peachtree City Police Department made an official announcement that all Fayette County Schools are closed tomorrow due to extreme weather conditions.

Copy of The Official Statement

Public roadways have not improved and are not expected to do so until late tomorrow morning. A hazardous driving alert is still in effect. All Fayette County Schools are closed tomorrow.

Peachtree City Police would like to offer some winter survival and driving tips. First of all, don't get stranded in the first place. If you don't have an important reason for driving in the snow and ice, stay home and wait for the roads to be cleared. Avoid traveling for anything but medical emergencies, or you run the risk of getting stranded.

Be prepared. Ensure that your vehicle is readily equipped with the following essentials before heading out when snow is in the forecast:

Blankets
Pillow
Warm clothing, to be used if you need to change
Non-perishable food (e.g. nuts, canned tuna, crackers, dry cereal, fruit cups)
A flashlight and extra batteries
Matches
Prescription medications
A fully-charged phone
Snow shovel
Ice scraper
Jumper cables
Extra gas
Add anything else vital that you may find useful if trapped in your car.

Tips for long-distance winter trips:


Keep at least half a tank of gasoline in your vehicle at all times.
Pack a cellular telephone with your local AAA’s telephone number, plus blankets, gloves, hats, food, water and any needed medication in your vehicle.
Don’t over exert yourself if you try to push or dig your vehicle out of the snow.
Tie a brightly colored cloth to the antenna or place a cloth at the top of a rolled up window to signal distress. At night, keep the dome light on if possible. It only uses a small amount of electricity and will make it easier for rescuers to find you.
Make sure the exhaust pipe isn’t clogged with snow, ice or mud. A blocked exhaust could cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to leak into the passenger compartment with the engine running.
Use whatever is available to insulate your body from the cold. This could include floor mats, newspapers or paper maps.
If you are stranded run the engine and heater just long enough to remove the chill and to conserve gasoline.

Tips for driving in the snow:


Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Applying the gas slowly to accelerate is the best method for regaining traction and avoiding skids. Don’t try to get moving in a hurry. And take time to slow down for a stoplight. Remember: It takes longer to slow down on icy roads.

Drive slowly. Everything takes longer on snow-covered roads. Accelerating, stopping, turning – nothing happens as quickly as on dry pavement. Give yourself time to maneuver by driving slowly.

The normal dry pavement following distance of three to four seconds should be increased to eight to ten seconds. This increased margin of safety will provide the longer distance needed if you have to stop.

Know your brakes. Whether you have anti-lock brakes or not, the best way to stop is threshold breaking. Keep the heel of your foot on the floor and use the ball of your foot to apply firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal.

Don’t stop if you can avoid it. There’s a big difference in the amount of inertia it takes to start moving from a full stop versus how much it takes to get moving while still rolling. If you can slow down enough to keep rolling until a traffic light changes, do it.

Don’t power up hills. Applying extra gas on snow-covered roads just starts your wheels spinning. Try to get a little inertia going before you reach the hill and let that inertia carry you to the top. As you reach the crest of the hill, reduce your speed and proceed down hill as slowly as possible.

Don’t stop going up a hill. There’s nothing worse than trying to get moving up a hill on an icy road. Get some inertia going on a flat roadway before you take on the hill.

Stay home. If you really don’t have to go out, don’t. Even if you can drive well in the snow, not everyone else can. Don’t tempt fate: If you don’t have somewhere you have to be, watch the snow from indoors.
