Nor’easter March 7-8, 2018

As you may be aware, the next significant snow event is anticipated for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon.  This storm is predicted to bring up to a foot of snow or more in some areas and result in difficult to impossible driving conditions during the late evening Wednesday through early Thursday morning.

We would ask for your assistance and cooperation to ensure that roadways and parking areas can be properly maintained during the storm.  Based on the current forecast we do want to note:

  •  Plowing will be performed throughout Wednesday night in an effort to keep areas accessible.
  • Rear gates are in the open position to allow the snow plow access and will be reset once snow removal is complete.
  • As the heavy snow is expected to continue into Thursday morning, conditions may be poor with only travel lanes open.  We ask that you use caution when walking outside as conditions may be slippery.
  • The best way to reach your Property Manager during the storm will be through email at pmanager@kesslerfarms.com. The North Point after hours emergency line is for emergency issues and should not be used for snow removal related items.
  • Morin’s will begin snow removal at 10 am on Thursday morning. Should snow continue throughout Thursday an additional cleanup will take place on Friday morning at 8 am.
  • Please help Morin’s and Management and  please park at your unit or at one of the club houses. The club houses for parking your vehicles are located on Glen cliff (Tinker Road Pool), Glastonbury Pool house and the Main club house next to the water tower.  Some villages have overflow parking and all residents can use the overflow parking within the community.
  • Let’s once again show a lot of courtesy to our neighbors when cleaning off the cars and getting them out of the way so Morin’s can clean up the area.
  • Morin’s will sound their horns when they are in your village doing the final clean-up, so please move your cars.
  • It is also imperative that you clean off the deck on your unit PRIOR to the final clean-up so that Morin’s can remove the snow from the area.
  • Cars that impede the snow removal process will be towed.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owners responsibility to notify your tenant.

Thank you for your assistance and cooperation throughout this significant snow event.

01/04/18 Snow Storm

The Property Manager has spoken with Morin’s and they will do their best to keep the roads open during the storm. Morin’s and Management are kindly asking that NO cars park on any of the roads in the community during the hours of 8 am on Thursday (January 4, 2018) through Friday until after the final clean-up is complete in your area (January 5, 2018).  Morin’s needs to open the road to the full width in order for passing to be safe and for them to have places to put the snow. Visibility will be limited  and parking on the roads makes it dangerous for Morin’s to plow.  Please help Morin’s and Management and  please park at your unit or at one of the club houses.

The club houses for parking your vehicles are located on Glen cliff (Tinker Road Pool), Glastonbury Pool house and the Main club house next to the water tower.  Some villages have overflow parking and all residents can use the overflow parking within the community.

On Friday, January 5, 2018, Morin’s will begin the  final clean-up  starting at 9 am.

They will sound their horns when they are in your village doing the final clean-up, so please move your cars.

It is also imperative that you clean off the deck on your unit PRIOR to the final clean-up so that Morin’s can remove the snow from the area.

Cars that impede the snow removal process will be towed.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owners responsibility to notify your tenant.

Let’s once again show a lot of courtesy to our neighbors when cleaning off the cars and getting them out of the way so Morin’s can clean up the area.

Please be aware that the Property Manager may send out updates should the track of the storm change.

A message from our Property Manager on the snowstorm.

Good Afternoon,

This incoming storm is a hard one to get some accurate information on.  It appears it will start as snow by 7 pm in Southern NH  (but looking outside my office windows is snowing pretty good right now) followed by sleet and ending with rain.

Since we are not sure what is going to happen Monday into Tuesday (January 23-24,2017) there will not be any final clean-up on TuesdayJanuary 24, 2017–  at this point.

If it is determined that a final clean-up is needed, I will be done on WednesdayJanuary 25, 2017 – and I will send out the email blast with final clean-up instructions.

Please be drive safely.

The current forecast:

NH1 First Alert Weather Warning: Storm hits NH with icy mix of snow, sleet Monday night into Tuesday

By:  Ryan Breton

NH1 Meteorologist

A storm that brought severe weather, flooding rains, and tornadoes to the southeast over the weekend is headed in our direction.

This incoming storm will be loaded with moisture, but the lack of deep cold air will prevent this from being a pure snowstorm. Instead, a variety of precipitation will hit the Granite State.

Some scattered snow showers are possible this afternoon and evening, but steady snow holds off until after the evening commute.

Snow will begin in southern New Hampshire between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday. Some sleet may mix in initially, but as the column of air cools, a burst of snow is expected. Precipitation will overspread the northern half of New Hampshire after 10 p.m., taking until after midnight to reach the North Country.

Once the precipitation starts, it’ll ramp up quickly, with the heaviest falling overnight into Tuesday morning.

Milder air will move in aloft toward dawn, while temperatures at the ground will remain near or below freezing. This sets up a messy mix. Near the seacoast and in southeastern New Hampshire, temperatures should rise above freezing, with a plain rain for the morning commute. However, north and west of Nashua, it may be quite icy with a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow.

Steady precipitation will come to an end during Tuesday morning, with scattered areas of freezing rain into Tuesday afternoon. I don’t expect temperatures to rise much at all on Tuesday, so icy spots will linger inland.

Another important element of this storm will be the wind. East-northeasterly gusts to 50 mph are possible near the coast and in some of the hilly terrain. This may cause scattered power outages, especially in areas with snow and ice.

There may also be some minor coastal flooding, beach erosion, and splashover for a few hours surrounding Tuesday’s 8:41 a.m. high tide at the seacoast.

Snow totals will depend on how much sleet mixes in. If sleet mixes in early, then the lower end of the ranges are expected. If the precipitation falls as snow for a longer period of time, higher amounts will occur.

Snow Removal

This storm changed every hour.  It went from no snow, to dusting to 1-3 inches and now we are at 5-8 inches.

It looks like the storm will be pulling away now between 1-2 this afternoon.

Morin’s will begin to clean all areas as soon as it stops snowing.  They will start to clean the parking areas and get as many completed as possible this afternoon and into the evening.

Morin’s will be on site tomorrow, Saturday, February 6, 2016, starting at 8 am to do the final clean-up.  All cars should be out of the parking areas for the final clean-up.  Cars that impede the final clean-up may be towed at the car owners expense.

Should you be gone for the day on Saturday, please park your car at one of the clubhouse houses that are located at each pool in the community or park in overflow parking in your area, if you have one, so Morin’s can complete the final clean-up.

To make snow cleanup more efficient please shovel snow off any decks that are over parking or walking areas prior to final clean-up so the plows can move the snow away.

Morin’s has asked the no cars be parked in the roads , this would include individual roads into each village.  Parking on the roads will make it nearly impossible for them to open the roads to the full width of the roadway during the snow storm which is essential for safe passage.

If you can’t park your vehicle in your driveways, please park at one of the clubhouses (located on Tinker Road, Glastonbury Drive and Kessler Farm Drive).   Many villages have overflow parking as well.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owner’s responsibility to provide this information to the tenant.  You can direct them to www.kesslerfarms.com Latest News block/Twitter feed.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you in regards to the previous email from the Property Manager indicating the final clean-up would be today.

If you have any questions, please contact the Property Manager at  pmanager@kesslerfarms.com or 603-205-5391.

Latest Snow Storm Clean-up

Morin’s  will do their best to keep the roads open and passable during the storm on Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. On Wednesday, January 13, 2016, they will start a  final clean-up  at 9am.

Please note the final clean-up will start at 9 am, but it doesn’t mean the crews will be in your area at 9 am. Kessler Farms is a large property and final clean-up takes approximately 8 hours to complete. Morin’s and/or Management can’t give specific times as to when the crew will be in your area. Under our snow procedure the crews will sound their horns when they are in your area completing the final clean-up, so please move your cars in order to keep the process effective and as efficient as possible.

Should you leave your unit during the snow removal process and your area is not cleaned up, please do not leave your vehicle in this area as vehicles left will impede the snow removal process.  Vehicles left behind and impeding snow removal will be towed.  Cars  may be parked at any one of the clubhouses located on Tinker Road, Glastonbury Drive and Kessler Farm Drive.   Many villages also have overflow parking which is available as well.

Morin’s has asked the no cars be parked in the roads , this would include individual roads into each village.  Parking on the roads will make it nearly impossible for them to open the roads to the full width of the roadway during the snow storm which is essential for safe passage.

We appreciate your help with the overall snow removal process!!
