Enjoying the Season
Hello, Happy Wednesday from snowy New England!
We have had a crazy number of days here in eastern MA. Last Thursday night we went from pouring rain to an inch of snow, luckily it melted right away. Then on Saturday afternoon a Nor'Easter started and we ended up with 6 inches of wet, heavy snow. We still have all the leaves on our trees because of the late Fall we were having so tons of large limbs fell off the trees and onto the power lines. Lots lost power, 80% of the town. The town looks like a war zone and it has canceled school and work for at least 3 days, probably more. Nothing around us was open except for a gas station and the wait for gas is 45 min. minimum. I never lost power but we were the only ones on a small stretch of road that didn't. My house has been the go to place for these days so that our family and friends can be warm, have a place to sleep and a hot meal. My poor sister Peggy has been running between Panera's in NH and my house trying to get some reports that needed to be done finished in a somewhat quiet place. I am exhausted from the nonstop people here. I haven't had a minute to myself until now. Even Halloween was pushed out a week because it was too dangerous with the downed lines and weakened trees. It seems like we went from a beautiful late summer to an early winter, so much for our crisp, beautiful Fall. I hate when the seasons collide on top of us!!!!!!
