Flooding on North Shore from Nor'easter

A nor'easter is a macro-scale cyclone. The name derives from the direction of the strongest winds—as an offshore air mass rotates counterclockwise, winds tend to blow northeast-to-southwest over the region covered by the northwest quadrant of the cyclone.  The term is most often used in the coastal areas of New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.

Northeast Snow Storm/Ice Dams

A major snowstorm hit Boston, and much of the Northeast. Many homeowners know that unsightly ice dams are what often follows a major snowstorm and onset of low temperatures. The resulting damage from ice dams to the roof and the rest of the house can easily cost thousands of dollars, especially if the snow is allowed to remain on the affected roof for a long time

Ice Dams

Icicles dangling from a thick blanket of snow on a roof are the backdrop to an idyllic winter scene. That same pretty picture of ice might cause an ugly reality for the residents inside the home.

The weight of the ice bearing down on the gutters backs up to the point where it melts into the home, encouraged by heat emanating from the interior of the house. If you cannot remove the snow from the roof, ice dams can block water backing it up rather than allowing it to run off of the roof.
