FYI

We're going to spare you the pictures, but imagine a huge glob of wipes and other waste that got clogged in a sewer pipe and couldn't be processed by a grinder pump at the Town's sewer pump station. Then, this causes a backup in our sewer main, which resulted in a sewer overflow. Needless to say, it's not a pretty sight.

The primary source of this issue was the predominance of wipes in our pipes. Please note that baby wipes, towelettes, paper towels, wash cloths, and similar materials should NEVER be flushed down the drain.

Additionally, so-called "flushable" wipes are just as problematic. Although they claim to break down, they often do not. And with our system being as compact as it is, there is not enough time for these wipes to break down before they capture grease, debris, and other waste. Then, you end up with a mess.

Check out this link from the FTC about one "flushable" wipe company. https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2015/11/ftc-approves-final-order-requiring-wet-wipe-manufacturer

Please take great care to protect your pipes and protect the Town's infrastructure. Keep your wipes out of the pipes!

Town of Purcellville staff have reported multiple situations where children have built tunnels near the street or intersections and have almost been hit by equipment. This creates a SIGNIFICANT SAFETY HAZARD where children could be hit, hurt, or buried in a snowpile.

Please DO NOT allow your children to play near the street or intersections. Instead, stay safely in your yard and away from the street.

Even if it looks like the plows have not reached the edge of pavement, they are working to widen travel lanes and clear critical infrastructure. Children playing in or near the streets are nearly invisible to plow crews and present a safety hazard.

Please stay safe!

The high snow drifts block furnace vents and air intakes to some homes, predominantly those with newer high-efficiency furnaces. Those furnaces vent out the side of a home rather than up through the roof. Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department (AVFRD) Loudoun County Government Chair Phyllis J. Randall

The National Weather Service has just issued a Blizzard Watch for this weekend (http://www.weather.gov/lwx/). Here are some very important things to remember:

- Have a Family Preparedness Plan in place. Check out: http://en.readynova.org/family

- When a Snow Emergency is declared by the Town, there is no parking allowed on Snow Emergency Routes, which include: Main Street – Business Route 7, Berlin Turnpike – Route 287, Maple Avenue, A Street, 20th Street, 21st Street, 32nd Street, 23rd Street, Nursery Avenue, Hatcher Avenue, and Hirst Road – more information to follow.

- The Town plows all PUBLIC streets with the exception of Main Street, 287, and Hirst Road (which are plowed by VDOT). All PRIVATE streets are maintained by their respective Homeowner’s Associations.

- Please move all vehicles onto your driveway or in your garage. If they are left parked on a street, they will get plowed in. The Town does its best to keep travel ways completely clear, which may mean pushing deep snow completely surrounding vehicles that are legally parked on streets. By keeping your vehicle off the street, it makes our jobs more effective and keeps your vehicle from getting snowed in.

- Residents and business owners are responsible for clearing sidewalks on or abutting their property. Please clear sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of the storm.

- Please do not let your children play in the streets or on snow piles along streets. Our staff always keep an extra eye open and focus on safety; however, in heavy snow and low visibility, it can be hard to see if children are climbing on snow banks near the roadway. Safety is key!

- When using a snow blower, direct the snow into your yard, not onto the street. Otherwise, it will just get plowed right back into your yard and make all of our lives more difficult. Please blow it into your yard so we can keep all streets clear.

- If you haven’t already, consider adopting a fire hydrant near your home or business. By doing this, you commit to clearing a 3-foot radius around the hydrant after major snow storms so that Fire personnel can quickly access the hydrant in the case of emergency. Every second counts! More information at: http://hydrant.adopt-a-thing.net/Purcellville_VA

- Finally, be kind to your snow plow crews. They are working 15-24 hours shifts, and we are dedicated to keeping all public roadways clear in a safe and expeditious manner. Based on the nature of the job and the sheer physics of snow plowing, it may result in snow blocking your driveway. This is not a personal affront; it is unavoidable and will be minimized as much as possible. Should you have any issues or questions, do not confront the plow drivers, but call the Town Offices at 540-338-7421 or the On-Call Maintenance Staff at 540-454-3629.

The Chapman DeMary Trail is right here in Purcellville - for those of you who didn't know! It's a lovely place for a picnic and a trail walk.

Did you know that the Pileated Woodpecker is one of the biggest forest birds on the continent? They require large, standing dead trees and downed wood and they dig rectangular holes in trees to find ants. These large birds are between 15.7 and 19.3 inches long and have a wingspan of 26 to almost 30 inches! This one was spotted at the Chapman DeMary Nature Trail in Purcellville just yesterday!

Kids are going to use markers. SOOOO many markers. Many many hundreds of millions of markers are made and sold every year. Hats off to Crayola though, because they'll actually take them back. ANY markers (not just theirs). AND pay for shipping. I haven't done due diligence on the actual genesis of t…

Controversial for those who cherish their lawns, but the plight of bees is becoming widely known and understood. Consider making your yard more bee friendly.

DANDELIONS deserve a gold medal. One of the first links in that magical chain of events bringing dinner to our tables, this sunny flower is one of the first spring foods for bees. If bees survive the winter, they look to dandelions and other wildflowers for nutrition - so they can begin the work of pollinating our fruits and vegetables. As you know, the bees are in a pickle right now. Their population is dwindling. Let's not kill off anything that helps the bees.
