Spring in NH: Good the Bad and The Ugly

Spring in NH: Good the Bad and The Ugly

The Good:

Shoveling Snow becomes tilling the Garden and Planting

Shoveling Snow becomes tilling the Garden and Planting

Spring in NH  is the beginning  of change. Cold gray to warm colors of new flowers and green grass.  As we move towards warmer weather there are some wonderful activities to enjoy.

Spring skiing will last well into April this year and don’t forget to get your gear ready for a trip up Tuckerman’s Ravine.   

Snowshoeing will soon be transformed to hiking trails free of ice and snow. 

Biking on the open roads will soon turn to Mountain Biking on back woods trails.

Snowmobiling is still very active from Laconia north, the trails should last well into April. In a few weeks you will be putting the sleds away and getting your motorcycle ready for the first trips around the lake. 

Maple Syrup, if you have never been to a Sugar House make it a point this to visit one this spring. This coming weekend March 28th and 29th you will find open houses around the state stop by and visit one. 

Ice fishing will soon turn into open water fishing on all our lakes and ponds.  Don’t expect ice out on the big lake this year until mid to late April.  The lake had a solid surface of 3 feet of ice this year.    

Turkey and Deer will also become more visible roaming the fields for food.  Late May you may even catch a glimpse of a Fawn hiding in a field.   

Visit  http://www.nh.com  for other spring activities. 

The Bad:

Rock Walls and trails soon to be open for Hiking

Rock Walls and trails soon to be open for Hiking

Frost Heaves or for those unfamiliar with the term, big rolling deep bumps in the road.  When you see the signs do not ignore them.  Slow down.   

Mud season is here, your favorite dirt road short cut is now a rutted nightmare.  Sometimes worse than snow.  Careful you may get stuck and I guarantee you will be visiting the car wash daily. 

The weather is totally unpredictable.   10 degree to 50 degree to 8 inches of snow in the same day.  Once you get three days of temperatures in the 50’s you get all excited and bang 5 below zero.  Plan your outing for all temperatures, spring jacket to a winter jacket and boots. 

The Ugly:

Ice Fishing soon turns to trolling for Salmon

Ice Fishing soon turns to trolling for Salmon

Bird feeders are part of the winter ritual most of us enjoy. Watching the various birds come to the feeder and with more new arrivals as spring approaches. One of the unexpected new visitors are  bears.  Take your feeders in or at least take those on your decks down. Your friendly bear will scale the side of your deck for a free meal. Quite the experience looking face to face with Mommy bear looking in your slider.

Black Fly’s visit 2-3 weeks in May.  Last year we had an uneventful Black Fly season and  we hope for the same this year.  The first week of the season is just annoying, the second week they start to bite. A light wind carries them away or you can add bug spray to your cloths and a bug net. Don’t fret the season is only a couple of weeks. 

If you are visiting the lakes region and looking for a vacation home give us a call!

Maine State Flower: Is the Invasive Plant Finally Eradicated ?

Maine State Flower: Is the Invasive Plant Finally Eradicated ?

Twenty plus years ago as cable and satellite dishes were evolving in the remote areas of Maine this invasive flower species that is not native to any specific location was introduced. This flower that was the pride of Maine spread across into New Hampshire. The damage to the landscape can still be seen today.

With the invasion finally halted and the landscape dotted with these rusting relics what are the options other than dismantling and selling them to the scrap dealer. You can leave them in your yard like an heirloom from the past hoping someone will stop by to take family pictures in front of it.

Or

Why use it as a receiver — it works just as well as a transmitter.

Use it to signal aliens they won’t receive your transmission for millions of years or to send “instructions” to NASA probes too old to have authentication and authorization protocols…

It still works as a receiver, you could set it up to listen to what music they are playing on the space station or that occasional alien hello.

You could extend your WiFi to your favorite fishing spot.

What about a planter, hanging vines would cherish the sun.

Or, you could glue a Metallic Rod With A Red Tip to the center, and point it at your most paranoid neighbor’s house.

I am leaning toward the last option. Please weigh in with your suggestions and I will make a flyer to drop off with Maine State Flower owners.   PS: this is a little NH light Humor

New Hampshire home prices continue to increase in February 2015

New Hampshire home prices continue to increase in February The first two months of 2015 have seen roughly the same number of residential home sales as January and February of a year ago, but prices have continued on their upward trajectory, particularly in February. Just four fewer homes have been sold in New Hampshire in 2015 (1,354 to 1,350), while the median price of those sales has increased 4.2 percent year to date, and more than 8 percent in February alone. The median price in February 2014 was $208,000, and this year was $225,000. It’s the largest February median price figure since 2008 and marks a 27 percent increase from the lowwater February mark of $177,350 in 2012. The prices have been spurred along by a lack of inventory in New Hampshire, according to Maxine Goodhue, 2015 President of New Hampshire Realtors. “In today’s environment, properly priced homes will not be on the market for long,” said Goodhue, a broker with Bean Group in Bedford and an 18-year veteran of the real estate industry. “Inventory is low, and serious buyers seem to understand that they need to be very competitive with their offers.” The months’ supply of residential inventory – meaning the number of months it would take to sell off the current inventory at the average pace of sales for the previous year – in February reached a more than 10-year low, at 7 months’ supply. Condominiums are going at an even brisker pace, with the supply down to 5.8 months. In general, the condominium market is experiencing substantial increases in early 2015, with closed sales up by 19 percent in the first two months, and median price ahead by nearly 3 percent. In February alone, sales were up by 16 percent and median price ahead by 9 percent. Locally, four of 10 New Hampshire counties (Carroll, Cheshire, Rockingham and Strafford) saw residential unit sales increases in February of 2014 compared to 2013, while six of 10 saw an increased median sales price. “We’ve been relatively stable despite a significant winter, and I think it’s safe to say that most of us are ready for the thaw,” Goodhue said. “It’s shaping up to be a strong spring market.”
