Snow Plow Operations Update

This is to provide a quick update to assure you that our crews have been out and working around the clock to try to keep a path clear on the private streets in Broadlands.  There are ten trucks, three tractors, a bobcat, front end loader, and over 25 people dedicated to clearing the streets and sidewalks in Broadlands.

However, this storm is historic in nature and our drivers have said it is worse than Snowmageddeon was in 2010.  The wet, heavy snow, high winds, frequent whiteout conditions, and massive snowfall rates in a short period of time make keeping up with the snowfall difficult.  The trucks have also encountered abandoned vehicles in the middle of roads that they must work around, and have even gotten stuck themselves at times.  Additionally, the plow operators are having trouble finding fuel locally, and are having to travel to Leesburg or Chantilly to fill up.  They have also been helping ambulances get into the neighborhood and emergency responders get out of the neighborhood to get to work.

They are asking residents not to shovel snow from their driveways into the roadways as this creates even more snow for the plows to try to push.  Please shovel snow off your driveway into your yard if possible.
We ask for your continued patience and thank you for your understanding during this crippling and historic storm.

January 2016 Blizzard Update

The HOA office and Nature Center will close by 12:00 pm on Friday, January 22, 2016 in conjunction with the Federal Government.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you are well aware that we’re expecting a significant winter weather event this weekend.  Whether we get 12 inches of snow or 30, the impact will take its toll and we will be digging out for several days.  The governor has declared a state of emergency, schools have been canceled, and we are under a blizzard warning with heavy snow and wind expected through 6am Sunday.  Conditions will deteriorate rapidly starting Friday afternoon. I wanted to take some time to explain a little bit about what to expect in the coming days. Continue reading
