Cleaning up after a blizzard takes time

Blizzard leaves a mess behind for plow operators


Plaistow fire Chief John McArdle said residents may have dodged a bullet with this particular storm.

“The snow was very light and a lot of it blew right off because it was so windy,” he said. “I don’t think it’s on the same level of concern as it was two years ago. But people just need to make sure their roof drains are clear.”

Scott Lavoie of Derry offers snow and ice roof removal during the winter. He has received only three calls this week so far. But homeowners could have problems as the week progresses.

“It’s not so much about how much snow you have on your roof,” Lavoie said. “It’s a matter of when it rains, and when the sun melts the snow which determines if there may be problems.”
