2016 Goes Out with a Nor’easter!
We’re down to two days left of 2016 — and we DID get our nor’easter yesterday here in Maine, with more than a foot of new snow!
I am thankful that we did not encounter as many problems with this “quick hit” Nor’easter as we have with bigger, longer lasting storms in the past. Our power was only out for a few hours, and since it was during early to mid-morning hours, it didn’t interfere with too many activities. We also have a kerosene heater that kept us warm while the power was out.
Dave was able to overcome some obstacles with his plow truck and get our driveway and part of our yard plowed out (around the front and side for oil deliveries, and the other side for turning the car around and to give the dogs a place to run).
Then we were able to get out and check on Dave’s parents, and go grocery shopping. The main roads were cleared well, and as long as we took it easy on side roads, it wasn’t too bad.
And in spite of the need to shovel and plow the snow – it really is beautiful and fits the “Winter Wonderland” scenario!
So what about YOU?
