The first big storm of the year is here, and it's causing some schools and businesses to close early or cancel altogether.

Although it's not the first snow of the year, it's the first time we've posted cancellations. Remember to take it easy today and give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Consider putting at least some of the winter emergency kit items in your vehicle. (if you haven't put the kit together already) Fully charge your cellphone before leaving the house and program in emergency numbers, just in case you end up needing assistance.

Here's our list of cancellations and closings so far today. Remember to check back often, as we'll be updating the list throughout the day.
