Mayflower II Returns to Plymouth Waterfront

By |May 23rd, 2015|

Several people turned out at the canal to capture a glimpse of the Mayflower II as she was escorted back to her display berth in Plymouth Harbor. This past December, the Mayflower II sailed from Plymouth Harbor to Mystic Seaport to begin what will be a multi-year repair and restoration project. The vessel should be in tip top shape just in time for the 400th anniversary celebrations which are planned for Plymouth in 2020.

The Mayflower II left Mystic Seaport on Monday, docked overnight in New […]

Ellisville Harbor State Park a Plymouth MA treasure!

By |May 17th, 2015|

Ellisville Harbor State Park is a local treasure on Cape Cod Bay in Plymouth Massachusetts. If you haven’t explored this park, then I highly recommend you check it out.

I have driven past this park so many times and it wasn’t until my sister and I were on a mission to get a look at the right whales which were recently spotted feeding just off shore. I was a day late to see the whales, but I wasn’t too disappointed because I discovered a new spot […]

Homeowner Tip – Snow Removal

By |March 3rd, 2015|

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  Benjamin Franklin

It might be March, but the winter is far from over here in Massachusetts. Get ready, we are expecting more snow tonight and if that isn’t bad enough, the forecast is also calling for a miserable mix of wintery mess on Thursday. Given that, it’s no surprise that Boston will probably beat the snowiest winter on record in the next few days.

What a winter this has been. We have all had to deal with […]

Home Safety Tip – Up on the roof, there came such a clatter

By |February 24th, 2015|

“Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the window and threw up the sash!”

Certainly wasn’t a visit from dear old Saint Nick. It’s the wrong time of year, this must be a trick!

Holy thunderous noise! I thought my roof was going to cave in on top of my head in the middle of the night, and it isn’t easy trying to sleep with one eye open. Alas, we made it through the night and after talking to family, friends and doing a […]

Homeowner Winter Tip – Beware of Destructive Ice Dams!

By |February 9th, 2015|

The past couple of weeks have been brutal in the Northeast with all the heavy snow storms. Unfortunately, the conditions are ideal for the formation of dangerous ice dams on roof tops. If not treated, your roof could be subject to leaks.

This is the typical cycle of an ice dam:

Heat collects in the attic due to poor insulation and warms the roof, except at the eaves.
Snow melts on the warm roof and then freezes on the cold eaves.
Ice accumulates along the eaves, forming a dam.
Melted […]
