Here in Goffstown, N.H, we received 22 inches of snow. As you can see from these photographs, we received an impressive amount of snow...
...These pictures are of our back yard.
After the snow plow came our front yard became even more impressive a sight.
...These snow banks rise to over six feet, taller than me in some places. SWMBO and I have a hundred feet of driveway and there's no way we could shovel all that. So, we hired a local landscaper to plow us out.
I do not own a snow blower, primarily because I have a dirt-gravel driveway and I was told by people in the know that snow blowing rocks would destroy the internal workings of a snow blower.
I do have an electric shovel, however. It's a mini-snow blower at the end of a shovel handle. The electric shovel throws the snow an impressive distance and saves me from having to throw the snow myself by shoveling old school.
Fortunately, SWMBO and I never lost power during the storm but we were ready with our generator positioned at the front of our garage with sufficient gas to run it for a couple of days if it became necessary. We also had two full 5-gallon water jugs so we could flush the toilet. The well pump is not one of the systems that I power with the generator. We had plenty of flashlights, water, wood pellets for heat, food, etc. So, as I said, we were ready.
How did you fare during Mother Nature's hissy fit, AKA winter storm Nemo or "the snow-pocalypse?" Leave a comment and thank you for stopping by.
