​There is the prediction of freezing drizzle and ice accumulation starting Friday afternoon/evening and continuing through the holiday weekend. If icing has occurred please stay off campus if at all possible.  University Facilities, Residential Life Facilities and Memorial Union Facilities will be working to clear the ice as quickly as possible.  Unlike snow, ice is very difficult to break up and move.  It will take salt treatments and Mother Nature to help with the clearing.  Please take extreme care if you come to work over the weekend. There is a chance that power disruptions may occur due to the ice over the weekend.  Please turn off any electrical equipment (especially computers) that are not necessary.  Remember when you return to work on Tuesday that even with cleared walks and entrances, extreme care should be taken due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring.  Slick spots can and will appear throughout the day.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance when they feel unsure of the conditions. University Facilities (5331) will provide assistance for those who feel they need help from their car to the building.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful while this cleanup continues.   Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) and we will address it as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your cooperation and please be safe.
