A little snow from Nemo!

Posted by on February 9, 2013

Nemo, the Blizzard of 2013 brought us a little snow here in the hills of Southbury, CT. By the end of the storm, we ended up with nearly 2 feet of snow. Brody and Maya had a ball playing in the snow today, me I got to spend the day clearing the driveway, parts of the deck on the house as well as the roof of the motorhome.

There was way too much snow for hand clearing, and as our driveway is uphill and the snow was relatively heavy, it wasn’t a job for a snow plow either. Luckily we have a great neighbor – Ben Platt. He runs a 180 acre dairy farm and has lots of cool machinery – including an 8 foot snowthrower that attaches to one of his big tractors. This is the way to clear snow!

The top of the motorhome had more than a foot of snow on it, and I really wanted to get it cleared off before it started the melt/freeze/melt/freeze cycle. I started clearing off the roof of the motorhome with a roof rake, but with all the obstructions (vent pipes, a/c units, vents, etc) that was not an easy task so I climbed up on top – with a healthy dose of fear and respect for a slippery roof.
