Few motorists were brave enough to venture out onto Trinity Drive early this morning. Most government functions around the area were closed due to a winter storm that rolled in Thursday.
County hit by another big storm early Friday

A winter storm that rolled into the area Thursday night made a mess of things for Los Alamos County.
Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos County and Los Alamos Public Schools were all closed this morning.
Initially, the lab and the schools — which almost always schedule the same as each other — were going to operate under a 2-hour delay, but it was announced around 7 a.m. that the two entities would shut it down for the day.
At around 8:20 a.m., there was a single-vehicle accident on Main Hill Road that closed the road to traffic.
A vehicle rolled over on the Main Hill and the driver was injured in the accident, that according to Los Alamos Fire Department.
As of press time Friday, no other accidents had been reported.
NMRoads.com was warning about “severe” driving conditions between Los Alamos and Santa Fe on U.S. 285.
Los Alamos County, meanwhile, decided to close for the day around 8:30 a.m. Most county operations, including Atomic City Transit’s regular bus routes, were suspended.
The county issued a statement that customers who normally had their trash collected Friday should instead put their rollcarts out Monday for pickup.
