Good News from A Great City Haverhill, MA
After this last 16-18″ snowfall, as with every snowstorm, The Heartbeat of Haverhill is forced from our warm home and heavily ‘powdered’ parking lot into the icy cold for an hour or so while the lot is plowed. This is usually in the morning, robbing me of the option to sleep in after a work canceling storm. Every time I seek out reasons to be happy for this season. THOH usually finds it, despite grumbled protestations that of the four New England seasons, Winter is my 5th favorite. Eventually by the time I return to my plowed out yard and shoveled, sanded, and salted walkway, I am almost always smiling. grateful, and hoping to share the beauty, and even humor.
Yes it is tough walking about or finding parking or keeping track of both gloves, but we have helpers here in the City who plow and shovel and provide shelter as needed. And I am very thankful for them. Citizens and employees who put the effort forward to do a good job to make the City safe. Sure it may not happen instantaneously on every street, but they are out there working round the clock. In fact by 8 am the day after this storm the major roads were cleaned down to the pavement, and easily passable. Smaller side streets do take longer.
