A look back - 5 years ago along the streets of New Ipswich

In December of 2008 our town experienced a massive ice storm
We were out of power for 12 days and burned through a winter's worth of firewood so we could stay in the house.

By April of 2009, this was the common sight along the streets of town. Huge brush piles along the streets, awaiting pickup.

My pile was rather modest. I grew tired of hauling and just let it lay where it fell

I guess it wasn't all bad, plenty of firewood was available (all from fallen trees)
