Snow Parking Rules Reminder – When we are expecting snow, all residents must park in a parking plaza. Do not park along the road. This will enable maintenance to clear the roads first. Once the roads are cleared of snow and a path has been plowed down the middle of your parking plaza, you may move your car to the street. When enough cars are out of the plaza, maintenance will plow the plaza.
Winter Safety Tips – Following these tips may prevent a slip and fall when there may be snow or ice on the ground.
Wear flat-soled shoes or boots with good rubber treads. Avoid high heels.
Take short steps or shuffle for stability. Keep your head up and your hands out of your pockets in order to keep your center of gravity over your feet.
Use handrails when going up and down steps or ramps.
When getting in and out of a vehicle hold onto it for support.
Use shoveled, salted, and/or sanded walkways.
Be aware that it takes time for ice melt to work and that some areas may still be slippery.
Watch out for black ice.
Areas in the shade may stay icy longer than areas in the sun.
Cardboard Boxes – Before putting boxes in the dumpster, please, break them down and flatten them out. This way there will still be room for regular household trash. Your neighbors appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Head-In Parking of Vehicles – It is required that all residents and their guests park their vehicles head-in when parking in our plazas. Parking head-in keeps the exhaust fumes away from our homes. In addition, parking head-in prevents the hot automobile exhaust from burning the grass or other plantings that might be there. This rule is relaxed during snow storms. Otherwise, please, park your vehicle head-in. Make sure your visiting relatives and friends adhere to this rule, too.
Slow Down – The speed limit in Bretton Woods is 25 m.p.h. Speeding can lead to an unnecessary loss of life. The lives of pedestrians and animals that cross the road matter, too!
L.I. Lumberjack – L.I. Lumberjack was scheduled and had to reschedule due to weather-related backups. Hopefully, by the time you read this, 2 days of tree trimming and cutting will have taken place on Skyline Dr.
Our Pipes – This is a reminder not to put wipes down our pipes. Even flushable wipes clog the system. Only what nature intends and toilet paper are to go down the toilet. Put grease in the garbage and not down the drain. Grease clogs our pipes just like it clogs our arteries. Help to prevent an unnecessary sewerage back up due to a clogged pipe and save yourself some money.
Walkways – Please use the existing walkways and do not take shortcuts through the woods or over the grassy areas. This is for your own safety.
February 17 is Random Acts of Kindness Day – February is National Random Acts of Kindness Month. Just as it sounds you make someone else’s day better by doing something kind for no reason. Join a growing movement to make the world a better place. Make kindness the norm. https://www.randomactsofkindness.org/
