You don't have to put too much thought into whether or not you're staying home today -- roads in Drumheller and highways in the area are covered in a deep, heavy snow that is making driving nearly impossible.
An east wind is also reducing visibility on the highway and worsening the situation.
The Hanna RCMP have issued the following statement concerning the roads and highways in the area:
The RCMP have been watching the road conditions and have been receiving updates from motorists. The current conditions on Highways 9, 36 and 570 are zero visibility from blowing snow and snow building up on the roads in most areas. This is causing dangerous driving conditions.
Travel is not recommended at all. Please avoid any travel until the storm has passed and crews are able to clean the roads.
