Winter Storm has a Silver Lining
I’m not sure any of us were prepared for the storm that hit our region Sunday night into Monday. Excessive rain combined with snow melt and runoff caused vast power outages throughout the state, flooding, some school closings, downed trees, and slippery road conditions. Here in Walpole, NH a combination of rain and freezing rain fell while nearby Keene, NH received all rain and just north of us received two additional feet of snow!
Here at the inn we lost power for about 5 hours and the basement of the inn flooded, but worst of all a very large limb from our 200+ year old Sugar Maple tree is now resting precariously on the roof of the inn. Luckily the limb did not pierce the inn’s roof or smash any windows, but the height of the remaining snow piles and the surrounding water logged ground is presenting quite a challenge to remove it safely. I guess I’m looking forward to spring more than I thought!
