I'm taking a break. Readers are invited to share thoughts, questions, suggestions, complaints, and whatever else you want—as long as it relates to life in the area and you aren't rude.
Here's a question: We lost a lot of trees in the big snow and now we have a lot of wood. But I'm not sure where to store it? Where do people keep logs so it stays warm and dry but isn't in the house?
We keep ours on our porch. But it is best to keep them away from the house.
you can stack it outside under a tarp to dry out. looks kinds woodsy but it works.
Hi. I'm looking at houses in the area and have been a bit worried by the amount of tree fall--there are fallen limbs all over! My realtor said it was very unusual and hadn't been this bad in a long time. Is that true or does this happen every year?
Monica,This was supposedly the most damaging storm since 1997. I personally I have never see so much tree damage before. Our tree guy said that he got a year's worth of work in one day! So, in this case at least, your realtor speaks the truth.
Not only did trees fall. A lot of basements also got flooded as a result of the blizzard/rain combo. I know mine did. I just have one recommendation for all people moving into the area: make sure your basement has a sump pump! Ours didn't, and we paid a price! I'm looking into installing one now. If anyone has any advice, let me know! But Monica, I moved to the area 2 years ago from Brooklyn, and overall, I am extremely happy. Flooded basement and all. :-)
