What's Happening

Second Week of January Weather Conditions

We are still CLOSED to the public! The entire Eugene area was covered in 4-5 inches of snow and frozen rain over the weekend, which was on top of the ice from earlier in the week. Although it is now raining with temperatures above freezing, the rain is unable to melt this pack of ice quickly. 

Weather forecast calls for another round of snow Wednesday night, and with lows dropping below freezing Thursday and Friday, we may be still be covered in ice. Stay tuned.

We'll update the page should conditions change and you are welcome to call us at 541-485-1320.
