There’s a boatload of snow out there

The latest winter storm has descended upon metro Detroit, dumping up to a foot of snow across the whole region. The city reportedly contracted additional snow plows to handle all the extra frozen water. Hundreds of schools closed today and more than 100 flights have been canceled or delayed out of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport. In the midst of Snowpocalypse 2018 (remember when it was 50 degrees out last month?), Eater is tracking all cold weather-related restaurant, bar, and food truck closings for the day, Friday, February 9. Right now it seems most businesses are opting to open as usual but that could change as the day moves on. If you do order delivery, tip really well and, most of all, be careful out there.

Note that this guide is only covering restaurants, bars, and food trucks that are either closed or delayed openings today because of the storm. Know of any other places that are affected by the weather today? Let Eater Detroit know through the tipline.
