The Abominable Snowman just entered Spotswood Police Headquarters to file a complaint... Luckily, a monster translator was available to translate Abominable's complaint which read, "uuggh uhh ugghh uuugghhh ughh..." (followed by a lot more grunts). The monster translator said that Abominable was extremely upset when he drove around Spotswood and the neighborhood children were not outside in the snow. He said Abominable loves the snow, the children should too. He did not want to eat snow by himself, maybe have a snowball fight and make snow angels.

Let's show the Abominable Snowman that Spotswood loves the snow too!

As much as we all hope we don’t get as much snow as they are forecasting, we still have to be prepared in case they are correct. We are expecting 12-18 inches of snow which can bring down power/fiber lines and tree limbs. Please be aware of your surroundings and please remember the following.

-Remove all vehicles from snow routes as soon as the snow starts. If your vehicle is left in the roadways and DPW reports it for blocking their ability to remove the snow, then it will be ticketed and towed. Even if your vehicle is not on a snow route please remove them from the roadways to help clear your street more efficiently.

-If your power does go out and it is not life threatening, please call JCP&L directly. There is nothing we can do to speed up the process. If you need shelter due to a power outage and have nowhere to go then contact us and we will make arrangements with Spotswood OEM.

-If you see wires down on your property and need help identifying them, feel free to call us. If we determine that there is no threat to public safety (cable/fiber) it will be up to you to call it in to Comcast or Verizon so they can restore your service.

Please stay off the roads if possible to prevent being involved in an accident. Even if you feel you are driving safe, the other person may not be.

Thank You and Be Safe!!

ALL RESIDENTS: Please remember that calling The Spotswood Police Department because you are unsure what kind of wire is hanging low or has fallen is perfectly ok. Once we come out and determine it to be a copper or fiber wire (Comcast\Verizon) if it is on your property, it is up to you to call the respective utility companies and notify them. They will then put in a ticket request and dispatch a utility worker to come out and have it fixed.

We cannot do anything on our end unless it is life threatening (Live Power Lines only), a downed utility pole or a road hazard. The utility trucks are driving around fixing the wires in the order that the calls are received, so please do not stop them to ask them to fix it or to let them know of a wire down. They will advise you to call the main number to put in a request and they will eventually get to you.

Also please remember wires are still down everywhere and the roads are still icy. Please use caution when driving and remove all the snow from your vehicle.
