Only two days remain in what has been one of the most stressful, difficult, and challenging months we’ve ever seen when it comes to dealing with Mother Nature. The total winter snow accumulation has passed the 100” threshold, something that has only been seen once before in recorded history! From the rural towns outside of 495 to the “parking war-zone” on the streets of South Boston, we’ve all been affected by the snow’s overwhelming reach. At Corcoran communities all throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, and New Hampshire, dedicated maintenance staff members have been busy around the clock dealing with insane amounts of snow, ice dams, dangerous black ice, and walkway clearing. Whether it’s a small community of 60 apartments, or a larger community with over 500 residences, it takes around-the-clock hard work and dedication to clear out the amounts of snow that we have seen in the last month.
South Weymouth was one of the hardest hit communities in all of Eastern Massachusetts. Seemingly each week throughout February we received around 18 inches. This can be a challenge to anyone who has to shovel their driveway or clear their walkway. It’s an added challenge for our maintenance staff. That’s why we are lucky to have Rick and Eric here on staff, all of their hard work made sure that all roadways, walkways, and resident parking spots were cleared out!
