This year however we have had an earthquake, a hurricane and then a truly freak snowstorm just before I halloween. It was well forecast and we knew it would be bad. Wet snow does not usually fall on trees with leaves but this time it did causing branches, limbs and trees to Fall everywhere, many times taking power lines down with them. We lucked out and did not lose electricity but so many of our friends and neighbors did- many for an entire week or more. (We suffered that 8 weeks before during Hurricane Irene). Amazingly our schools were open but the town felt the need to cancel halloween (ok- they postponed it- but it was very mixed as to who knew- so it was kind of cancelled).

I am not sure of what the winter holds for us- I hope it is calmer than last winter and we have less damage than this Fall. I thought we were going through global WARMING?
