SNOW POLICY!!!! – Friday Night Swing, Polish Home, 9 First St, Windsor Locks, CT

 As a general rule of thumb, I do NOT cancel dances due to snow. Unless it is a MAJOR snowstorm that encompasses all regions people drive from, or is centered in Windsor Locks, CT.  As you all know, folks travel from about a 40-50 mile radius from Windsor locks, and as we all know with New England weather … it could be snowing in Northampton or New Haven, and have nothing to very little snowfall here. To illustrate this, I have cancelled only 5 dances due to weather in almost 25 years. I’m more apt to cancel due to Ice Storms than a few inches of snow.

USE YOUR HEAD!!! The main roads to the Polish Home are major routes and are well maintained in the winter. This hall is less than 1 mile off the Highway (I-91). If the driving is treacherous in your area, stay home. If not, come on down.

 I do take into consideration timing of the storm, amount of snowfall, road conditions, icing, etc. A decision will be made by 4:00PM the evening of the dance and will be posted on the website (DjKenM.com), Hartford/Springfield Friday Night Swing Facebook page, an E-mail will be sent and … If I can … messages on the answering machines for the following numbers … 860-749-5434 & 860-559-6179 will reflect any announcements.

If I do cancel a Friday Night dance, and the hall is available, I “May” do that Saturday night instead ... providing there is no conflict with another dance close by.
