Getting around won’t be easy in some parts of Cache Valley today following the massive blizzard that roared through the area Tuesday afternoon. The Cache Valley Transit District will follow its regular schedule if possible, but no school buses will be needed because schools were already scheduled to be closed for the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend. CVTD Spokeswoman Lisa Peterson said if the roads are too bad there will be a change to the “snow route” schedule and there will be announcements made to the media and signs put up for prospective passengers. Peterson said buses will not be running during the Thanksgiving Day holiday. Logan City and Cache County offices are open Wednesday but closed both Thursday and Friday. There will be no garbage or recycling collections Thursday, but both will resume on Friday. The storm came just after 3 p.m. yesterday, almost exactly at the time predicted. Fortunately, many preparations had been made for the winter storm that moved in reducing visibility to less than a quarter of a mile and bringing snow, high winds and icy road conditions. Schools had closed by then, as had many business and government offices and many meetings and events scheduled for last night had been canceled. Law enforcement officers were helping drivers all over the valley who had slid off the road during the storm.
