Well, the weather folks seem to have gotten it right. Snow is falling quickly and roads are icing up. Aside from essential storm personnel, Town and Village offices will be closed today, but we look forward to serving you bright and early Friday morning.
We urge you to do your best to stay indoors and off the roads, so that our Highway/ Parks and DPW crews can keep the path clear for emergency responders. It is also quite windy, which could mean downed power lines and outages. Be sure to charge up all devices, have flashlights and extra batteries nearby, and call 1-800-75-CONED to report service problems and downed wires. As a reminder, if you see a downed wire, steer clear and call Con Ed right away.
The roads are so slippery that even our bigger trucks are having difficulty. Suburban Carting also would like us to share that they were not able to complete their usual Thursday route today, so if they did not reach you, please be patient- they will get to you tomorrow when conditions clear up. The affected neighborhoods are Hudson Watch, Deerfield, Fox Hill, Ganung/ Cooper/ Stonegate/ Lakeville, and Studio Hill/ Tappan Terrace/ Leawood. If you are not in these areas and did not get a pickup today, please call our office and we will be sure to let Suburban know.
I hope everyone is able to stay warm and dry (at least, until the shoveling begins!)
