Winter in New England can bring a multitude of surprises and challenges when it comes to weather. Snow, slush, sleet, ice, and of course, frigid temperatures.
Last weekend, parts across New England experienced some of the most bone chilling temps in recent memory. Beginning Friday night and culminating into Saturday morning, temperatures reached negative digits. When the windchill was factored in, depending on the location, temperatures reached -20, -30, -40, and in some places even -50 degrees Fahrenheit. Now that is cold! On top of Mount Washington, the windchill pushed the temp to over -100 degrees. Incredible!
These frigid temps and high winds led to power outages and an extremely high quantity of frozen pipes throughout our team's coverage area. SERVPRO of Cheshire County received over 100 service calls due to burst pipes in the week following this extreme freeze event. Our team has been incredible with responding and providing service to as many of our customers as possible without sacrificing quality or professionalism. We want to extend a big thank you to our clients who have been patient and understanding during this event as we continue onward. Lastly, we want to give a heartfelt thank you to our dedicated crew for their hard work for the past week. We're grateful to have such an amazing team here at SERVPRO of Cheshire County!
