National Weather Service warns of freezing rain and snow on Sunday.
Temperatures were heading back up Sunday, but it could mean snow and a rough commute Monday for Woodbury residents. The National Weather Service has declared a winter storm warning for Washington County. Freezing rain is expected across the Twin Cities; it may change to snow during the late afternoon and evening. The weather service says there is the potential for two to five inches of snow, atop a layer of ice, which could have a big impact on Monday morning's commute. On Monday and Tuesday, highs at the freezing level or above are expected, but subzero lows may return later in the week.

David Jessup, Public Works director, talked about how people can make things easier on crews this winter.
The city’s winter parking regulations are in effect, and despite the lack of snow thus far this season, people are encouraged to adopt a fire hydrant. Those were a couple of seasonal reminders Woodbury Public Works Director David Jessup issued at last week’s City Council meeting. Woodbury’s winter parking rules went into effect Nov. 1. See: Winter Parking Regulations for Woodbury Now in Effect Meanwhile, the city asks people to shovel out the area around fire hydrants. People need not notify the city of the hydrant they have adopted. It’s an informal volunteer program the city has encouraged for several years. For more information contact the Public Works Department at 651-714-3720 or email email@example.com. Jessup also …

There were no serious injuries reported Monday morning.
More than 30 crashes were reported in Woodbury as of 10:20 a.m. Monday morning as the city saw the first significant snowfall of the season. No one was hospitalized as a result of the crashes, said Woodbury traffic officer Scott Melander. Often, motorists were sliding through stop signs or traffic lights, Melander said. Reports started coming in at about 8 a.m. and Woodbury police had received at least three dozen calls. “It’s been a busy morning,” Melander said. The Woodlane Drive hill at Valley Creek Road was too icy to drive up at one point this morning, but city crews were out salting the roads, Melander said, and that street is now drivable. “Drivers need to realize that they do need to slow down and drive for the conditions,” he said…

A wintery mix, which included some snowflakes, was falling Thursday afternoon in Woodbury. Are you looking forward to winter? Tell us in the comments section.
At least a few wet snowflakes were flying in Woodbury on Thursday afternoon. It was a wintry mix, and the snow wasn't sticking, but it was the first few flakes of the season for the city. The rain and snow was expected to continue until about 2 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. The forecast said there could be less than half an inch of accumulation, though that seemed unlikely around 12:45 p.m. Thursday. Friday is expected to be sunny with a high of 41.

Just because it's cold outside, it's no reason not to be stylish.
The time has arrived. We must begin planning our winter weather wardrobe. If you’re a freeze-baby like me, you’ll want to take advantage of what I’ve learned about staying warm during Woodbury winters. We’re not talking Man Vs. Wild or any real survival skills here. Just some reasonable ideas to ensure you’ll shiver a bit less this season. You’re welcome. Not just for mountaineering and winter camping. I wear a long-sleeved base layer almost every day from November to March. I’ve tried most varieties. Silk is the softest and thinnest and therefore adds the least amount of bulk under clothes. But I disagree with conventional wisdom that silk is the warmest. I’ve found engineered materials like Cuddl Dudds to be warmest. I prefer the …

Boxelder bugs and Asian lady beetles seem to come out of the woodwork at this time of year. Oakdale Patch connects you to resources to help stem invasions of these and other fall pests.
It's the time of year when you look out your window for a glance at those beautiful fall leaves—and your view might be obstructed by some creepy-crawlies. Boxelder bugs and Asian lady beetles seem to come out of the woodwork at this time of year. Oakdale Patch connects you to resources to help stem invasions of these and other fall pests. “When the weather cools, our warm homes are just as enticing to pests as they are to us,” writes Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association. “Yet, pests are unwelcome houseguests as they can pose serious health and property threats. In preparation for winter, homeowners should be proactive and vigilant in preventing pests from coming indoors.” This is …
