We were lucky enough to be on the warm side of the front as parts of Massachusetts and New Hampshire were coated in ice,bringing down trees and knocking out the power to approx 500,000 customers.They may be 'powerless' for many days and the news reports resembled a war zone.To compound the problem,the weekend weather there is forecast to be below freezing,like here,with warmer weather returning next week.
