Wellesley MA & Metrowest Boston....Get Ready for a Watery Mess!

by Team Lynch Real Estate Consultants


Have you been wishing for sightings of spring? I know we have....and we may be getting that wish this week with temperatures predicted to reach the 50's.  One problem, with so much snow on the ground, and the ground itself frozen up to 20 inches, where is all the melting snow going to go?

That answer is not one we're going to like...... Flooding!  Because of this, It is extremely important to pay attention to the weather reports and take any precautions necessary to safeguard your home and it's belongings.

1- Make sure your sump pump is working properly.

2- Invest in back-up generators in the event that you lose power and your sump pump would not work.

3- Check the sump pump discharge pipe outside of your home to ensure it is not frozen, clogged or blocked by mounds of snow.

4- Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clear and are moving water away from the base of your home.

5- Check your street drains to make sure they are clear of debris and can handle the melting snow.

6- Repair leaking or cracked basement walls and cracks in basement floors. Seal basement walls with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage.

7- Move snow on the ground away from your house, create a clear drainage path.

8- Elevate the furnace, water heater, and electric panel in your basement if you are susceptible to flooding.

Check out your local hardware store for sump pumps and other supplies that may be necessary to safeguard your largest investment...your home.

Wellesley & Metrowest Boston.....Snow, Snow and more Snow!

by Team Lynch Real Estate Consultants

It's pretty amazing looking at all the snow Wellesley & the Metrowest Boston area has gotten this year. Even though we are not at record totals for year to date, the combination of snow accumulation mixed with the extensive number of days with frigid wind chills makes this a record year already.

All we can do is get out and enjoy what mother nature has blessed us with and hope that the chirping sounds of spring will be here soon.  In the meantime, The Elm Bank Reservation is calling our names and the snow is perfect for making snowmen and snow forts.  Our parks are ready and willing to be your cross-country ski paths...and our local ski venues are rocking!  The Weston Ski Track is in great condition and The Ski Ward ski area & Boston Ski & Sports Club are awaiting your arrival.

I'm personally yearning for the golf season to begin.....but in the meantime......I'll be heading for the hills and outdoor fun with my family!
