Barcroft Snow Brigade
Winter of 2011-2012
The Barcroft Snow Shoveling Brigade is on the street and operating this winter, with more volunteers than ever. We have had two County-supplied neighborhood snow blowers since 2001, and hope to have them back this year, but most of our volunteers use good ole snow shovels. If you are unable to shovel your walks we can help. The County has a new snow ordinance, but we have always been motivated by pedestrian safety and maintaining access to public transit during snowy weather anyway.
The shovel brigade will clear:
Volunteers for 2012 include Peter Collins, Jim Kerr, Nancy Galib & Eric Parker, Mark & Jake Wigfield, Nicholas Garbacz, Tara Alisbah & Eden, Schwesers: Alan, Andrew & Theresa, Larry Oresky, Susan Bartow & Mark Bryer, Steven & Elizabeth Meacham, Rich & Moira McCormick, Bruce Atkinson, Don McKeon, David & Lisa Piantanida, Louise Shutler, Chris Whelan, Chuck & Benjamin Bean, Tim & Fannie Gray, Walter & Connie Pollard, Bill & Stacy Stryjewski, Amy Walter & Stephayne Grayson, Michael Novak & Brendan, Ethan and Seth, Pat Williamson & Ken Edwards, Tim Nelson & Wheeler Love, Michael & Mary Jean Bruno, Kevin Donnelly, Andrew Hunter, Susannah Rosenblatt and Adam Potter.
- The Community House walks, steps and our handicapped access ramp.
- Walks of those who can't do it for themselves. We know some of you, but you should call or email Sharon Tope if she does not have you on the list from last year.
- Major routes to school and metro bus service if we have time.
Many other Barcrofters shovel snow for a neighbor who needs help without being organized about it!
To volunteer or ask to be shoveled, contact Sharon Tope at 703-920-2567. Or send her an email.

Here is the County's snow plowing priorities map.
Red is for a primary route, blue is secondary, all the rest are whenever. Gold is a street designated for plowing by small trucks. The circled X marks designate speed humps.
