OCTOBER NOR'EASTER HAMMERS MAINE COAST
Central Maine Power stated over 200,000 homes without power in the aftermath of the storm. Local weather stations had reports of wind gusts in excess of 70 mph. I estimate 50 trees downed in my back yard alone and I now have an ocean view! My power was out at my home and office for 5 days!
The winds peaked in the early morning hours. I awoke at 2:30am and it sounded like a freight train roaring towards the house. At about 3am there was a push of wind that shook the entire house - a flash of orange light - then darkness - the roaring winds continued.
Daybreak revealed the carnage of fallen trees in my back yard. What the new day's light also revealed was my increased HOME EQUITY. Just beyond all the broken and twisted piles of evergreen was the shimmer of the sun's light on the ocean! I now have a vastly improved ocean view. It will be hard to hide this improvement from the town's assessor, she's my sister-in-law. So, with the new view will come the costs of clean up and new taxes. A small price to pay for years of being able to see the ocean.
If you're looking for a new home along the coast of Maine, I hope you'll allow us to be part of the journey and assist you in your search, negotiations and due diligence.
