The first winter storm in Oxford caused cancellations of all area schools and closed down numerous businesses. Most local government offices and services have been closed since Monday and many expect to remain closed at least through Wednesday.

The Oxford Community Market, generally held at 3 p.m. on Tuesdays at the Old Armory Pavilion, will be closed today.

However, the annual Oxford Fiber Festival, planned for Friday and Saturday at the Powerhouse, has not been canceled as of Tuesday.

The Oxford Eagle will provide updates as schools and other agencies make decisions on whether to reopen and resume normal operations starting on Thursday as soon as they are made available.
