Wintry weather has ground much of the state to a halt today. Schools, businesses, and governmental buildings were either closed or sent people home early.
Bad conditions are expected to persist through Wednesday and officials are urging motorists to avoid travel if possible.
Many events planned for this evening have been canceled as well so check before heading out.
