NOTAM will be lifted and both runways will be open by 11:00 am local. Ops did not clear hangar rows as the mid April sun will melt them quickly, but expect residual snow in hangar rows. Watch out for snow removal equipment on the airfield. Full FBO services will be available by 11:00 am.

What a nice spring surprise of snow last night! We got between 3-4” of accumulation, the team is rapidly clearing runways & taxiways, and mother nature is doing a great job with thermal heating. We anticipate beating the airfield closure NOTAM which is currently 2:00 PM Local and will update as the team makes progress. We will not be clearing hangar rows, but allowing the mid April solar effect to melt the snow. Watch out for snow removal equipment when walking or driving on the airfield.
