Franken Stube – Emporia, VA

We found this restaurant when looking for something that was not fast food or a chain. They have limited hours (Wednesday – Friday 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm and open Saturdays and Sundays at Noon.

Franken Stube is definitely worth planning a meal during those hours, especially if you like German food! Great schnitzel and sausage dinners!

Franken Stube is located on Atlantic Street, about 1/4 mile east of I-95, exit 11 in Emporia, Virginia.

Virginia DOT Ready for Massive Winter Storm Anticipated to Have Severe Impacts This Week

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews are in full deployment mode for a statewide winter storm that is expected to bring heavy snow fall, including freezing rain, with the height of the storm to hit Friday.

“Crews are in 24-hour operations with a significant force of crew members, equipment and materials and we are continuing to treat roads with anti-icing materials in advance of the next storm,” said VDOT Commissioner Charlie Kilpatrick. “With a storm of this magnitude, driving conditions will be extremely hazardous. I urge motorists to plan ahead, monitor weather conditions and stay off the roads during the storm.”

Currently there are some slick road conditions in the southwestern and northern regions of Virginia. Motorists should watch for icy patches, particularly on bridges and overpasses.

Crews are treating roads with anti-icing materials.

VDOT is preparing for total accumulations of one to three feet of snow across the state, with sleet and freezing rain in some areas. Two to three inches of snow per hour is expected during the worst of the storm Friday evening through Saturday morning. Motorists should not travel during the storm.

When the storm hits, crews work to clear interstates and primary roads first, then major secondary roads with vital emergency and public facilities, and then other secondary roads and subdivision streets. Crews focus their efforts on those roads that carry the most traffic.

In northern Virginia, trucks are pre-staged in subdivisions when two or more inches are forecasted. Throughout the storm, crews work on interstates, high-volume roads, and in subdivisions concurrently.
