February 2, 2011-NEMPA Winter Vehicle testing, originally scheduled for this Saturday, February 5, has been postponed due to, well, winter. Winter Test Day will now be Saturday, February 12. Award winners will be notified as soon as possible afterward.
The one to two feet of fresh accumulation that is now forecast for southern Massachusetts today will fall on snowbanks already too high to see over. Cleaning and plowing will cost John Lawlor and his Automotion crew two more lost work days. In addition, more snow forecast for Saturday could make just getting to Winter Test Day hazardous. NEMPA members attend from as far away as southern Vermont and midcoast Maine.
The regular February NEMPA meeting will still be combined with Winter Test Day, assuming Mother Nature lets us eventually hold Winter Test Day this winter. Please note also that Winter Test Day is only for NEMPA media members.
