It’s definitely been a stormy week with 31″ from the blizzard on Tuesday, 5″ from a storm on Friday, and it is snowing again right now.
Every town in New England does exceptionally well clearing snow. It is like an army of snow removal machines marching down the road.
There is never any doubt that the roads will be cleared in a timely manner and transportation will resume.
But, the one thing each town has to deal with after a week of heavy snow is what to do with it. In historic Portsmouth, they eventually have to start piling it into trucks and hauling it to Pierce Island for dumping, but that takes time and money.
After the initial 31″ of snow from the blizzard, this is what we saw when we drove around the area.
If you can get around the streets, the snow plowed up in front of the historic homes is unbelievable.
With today’s storm forecasted to drop another 12-16″, schools and businesses are closed again.
We’re waiting on a part that broke on our John Deere, but have no fear there are two generations of MacGyvers who live here.
We’re ready. We’ll find somewhere to put it.
But, if you haven’t had an opportunity to shovel snow in a while, come on over. We have plenty of shovels and scoops. There are no job requirements except the ability to throw a shovel full of snow over your head. Remember to dress warmly because we have a wind chill of -10. 🙂
