It's been a heck of a week here in Ossining-- we have more residents than we'd like who are still without power, though we have taken every opportunity we can to point our Con Ed Liaison and crews in their direction. I want to thank all of our residents for their patience in what has been a very stressful and uncomfortable situation, and I also want to thank the Ossining Police Department for taking the lead these past few days and coordinating with our Con Ed Municipal liaison in the field. Between Chief Sylvester (who you probably know from his Live Facebook videos), Lieutenant Slater and Lieutenant Montague, we have gotten exceptional service and these guys have really gone to bat for our community, working very long hours and never letting their frustration show. In all sincerity, we couldn't have done it without them.
For those residents who are still without power, there continue to be many services available to you. Club Fit is still offering a place to charge devices and take a hot shower (bring your own towels please), and there are three dry ice locations throughout Westchester County that will be open until 8PM tonight.
- Mount Pleasant Town Hall (1 Town Hall Plaza, Valhalla)
- New Rochelle City Hall- Back Parking Lot (515 North Avenue, New Rochelle)
- Cortlandt Town Center (3121 East Main Street, Mohegan Lake-- near Applebee's)

We are slowly but surely getting back to normal in the Town and Village of Ossining. We know that there are still some neighborhoods without power from Friday's storm, and several that lost power between Wednesday and today-- Con Edison has said that they are working on restoring the customers who have been out the longest first. There are also several outages that are tied to major outages in New Castle and Cortlandt, which we have been assured are also at the top of the list for restoration.
Thanks to everyone for their continued patience in what has been an unpleasant (to say the least) week for so many. We are extremely lucky to have such incredible crews and leadership out in the Village and Town-- special thanks to Town Highway Superintendent Michael G. O'Connor, Village Engineer Paul Fraioli, Chief Kevin Sylvester and Lieutenant Slater from the Ossining PD, OVAC, the Ossining Fire Department, and all of the boots on the ground from both the Town and Village of Ossining who have been busting their humps for days to keep us all safe. Thank you for proving, yet again, that the residents of Ossining are in good hands.

We are almost through the worst of it! The snow is expected to slow down in the next hour or two and be completely done falling by 4AM at the latest, so just a few more hours until we can get to shoveling and call this a bad dream. Because, let me tell you, it's ugly out there.
If you've ventured outside (and I don't suggest it!), you know that this is some wet, heavy snow we're getting now. Our plow guys are starting to report downed limbs, so unfortunately we may see another round of power outages- we already have a handful of large ones reported. If you experience an outage, call 1-800-75-CONED to open a ticket, and check the interactive Outage Map for information updated every 15 minutes. Even if you believe your neighbors have reported, please call it in yourself as well. You can also text the word "REG" to "OUTAGE" on you smartphone, or download the Con Ed app (if it's your first time, you will have to have your account number handy to get started). As always, if you do see a downed power line, report it to Con Edison and then to the local police (OPD can be reached at 914-941-4099 for non-emergencies, but always call 911 if you need emergency assistance.)
In the event that you do experience an outage, you will want to have extra batteries, flashlights, and charged devices handy, so get ready now just in case. We still have a lot of night ahead of us! If you or a neighbor have medical needs that require constant electricity, please call the Ossining Police and let them know-- if you do lose power, they can help you find alternate arrangements if need be. Please also know that the Warming Center at the Community Center has been closed for the evening due to lack of attendance, which is probably a good thing! We will update you tomorrow on hours for Thursday.
