On December 11 & 12, the southern tier of New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts were hit with an ice storm that has left thousands without power and decimated the area's electrical grid.
As of the latest reports, upwards of 100,000 residents are still without power. The local electric companies have been getting aid from as far as Canada and many of the surrounding states.
Some have stayed in their homes with generator power and still others are keeping warm with alternative heat such as wood, pellet & gas stoves and fireplaces. Many have chosen to go to hotels, family & friends homes and shelters.
If you have left or plan to leave your home, remember to drain out the pipes and add antifreeze to avoid freeze ups in your absence. Burst pipes can lead to an array of problems not the least of which is flooding, damage to walls, ceilings and in the long term mold.
You can read more about this storm and it's effects on my new wordpress.com blog called, The NH Real Estate Market Voice.
I am so happy to have running water in my home again. I hope I remember not to take this blessing for granted ever again.
