We had our first snowstorm. We’ve had snow before, but this is the first time it had to be moved. That’s how we measure it – does it have to be move or will it melt. 🙂
Individual homeowners who had to move it most likely weren’t too happy, but the ski resorts were probably quite content.
Skiers, snowmobilers, and snowshoers, were probably all smiling this weekend.
One ugly side effect of the storm was power outages. At one point, over 60,000 homes were without power, and there are still 5,300 out as of this morning. NH is 80%+ covered in trees. Lovely to look at, but when they get covered in heavy wet snow, they come down.
Our power stayed on. Thank you, Steve our power pole, for standing strong. Thank you also to the strong folks in my family who moved the snow while I stayed inside off the ice.
We did have one tree go down but not on anything so that was the plus side. The Craftsman battery operated saw will go out manned by a younger member of my family, and she’ll make quick work of dividing it so it can be removed.
Don’t know what to get the gardener in your life for Christmas? I would highly recommend Craftsman lithium battery tools. Slap that battery in and off you go to do your job. Best investment in tools we ever made, and I have a wall of them. 🙂
The rest of the week’s weather is pretty quiet with temps hitting 50 so the snow will melt.
So, until next time, may your health be good, your weather sunny, and someone who loves you bake you a dessert to keep your mind off all of the above. Me – I’ve got brownies with coconut frosting sitting on the counter. 🙂 Happy Monday!
