The Gold King Mine will be closed today as the snow will continue to fall along with expected high winds.  Blowing snow conditions make for blizzards and uphill travel to and from Jerome will be hazardous at best.  I-40 has already been closed which is about 40 miles due North of us.

Keep your eye on this space for normal hours of business and please, if no unnecessary travel, leave it to the first responders to get to their destinations as quickly as possible!
