SNOW Notice from Supervisor Nohe
Posted on Feb 9th, 2010

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDoT) is the agency responsible for all road maintenance issues, including snow plowing. The VDoT staff is already gearing up for this snow event, including brining additional snow removal equipment into the region from the Richmond and Hampton Roads areas. But they are asking residents to avoid driving during the storm and immediately after unless absolutely necessary, because the snow removal work is much more effective if the crews do not have to work around passenger vehicles. If you absolutely have to go out, I would encourage you to call the business in advance, to make sure that they are open before you leave. I have attached information about VDoT’s road clearing policy below. If you have a problem, or need to report an area that needs treatment, you can call VDoT at 703-383-VDOT.
Information about Prince William County government closings will be posted at www.pwcgov.org and information about the school system will be posted at www.pwcs.edu.
This event could also lead to additional homes losing electrical service or other utilities. Residents are encouraged to charge mobile phones and lap top computers before the snow arrives and place flashlights in an easy to find location. Should you lose power, you should immediately contact your electrical provider by calling NOVEC at 703-335-0500, or Virginia Dominion Power at 1-888-667-3000. You may want to add these numbers to your cell phone now, just in case.
If you have neighbors who are home-bound or have mobility issues, or even if they just live alone, you may want to check in with them to make sure that they are OK. Being trapped in a snowstorm can be very frustrating for all of us, but it can especially difficult for those of us who face loneliness as well.
Finally, make sure that your outdoor pets have plenty of food, fresh water and an opportunity to stay warm. You may want to bring those pets in for the night if possible because temperatures will drop very low and this is anticipated to be a very wet, heavy snow.
Hopefully, everything will be back to normal before we know it. In the meantime… PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
Thank you!
