In actuality, my lady Sveva, the chances of the roads being blocked
due to snow in this area are extremely remote. The complex in
question is immediately off of a major 4 lane road, which is only a
few miles off of interstate 70. It is all highway miles the entire
way there on this end of the trip. I am fairly certain that the
possibility of roads being blocked is not too big of a concern here.
