Saturday 10/27/18 was a really busy day for us. After dropping Beau off at the kennel for an overnight, we grabbed coffee and breakfast sandwiches at Dunkin' Donuts, and headed north on Route 28.
Snow in Tamworth.
Our first stop was in Conway where we met up with Sue's brother to finalize plans for the transfer of their mom's house. As we were sitting in the real estate agent's office, David Haine of David Haine Real Estate, we saw snow flakes start to fly around outside. By the time we left an hour later, it was snowing and sleeting hard enough to mount up to about a half inch on the ground.
We headed back down Route 16 to Chocorua, a part of Tamworth, where we turned off onto Route 113 West. The snow was falling pretty heavily by then, and 113 was getting slick. By the time we got over to Tamworth and then over to Ossipee, the driving was pretty rough. We learned later that many cars had spun out because of the conditions.
We stopped off for a short visit with Sue's Aunt Carol, and then headed over to the small community center in the park. Before we left Carol's I shoveled off the steps and part of the driveway, but when we returned a little over an hour later I had to shovel again; this time a heavy slush in a sleeting rain.
We had come up for Sue's great niece Bristol's 4th birthday party. All the family was there, and there were little girls running around all over the place having just the best time. I went out onto the community center's front porch a couple of times to watch the snow come down, but it was really pretty raw out, and the wind was blowing hard.
We left Carol's around 3:45 and drove down to Wolfeboro. Sue had suggested a visit to our favorite bookstore, The Country Bookseller, and I was all excited for that. We browsed around for awhile, just enjoying the relaxation, though I did buy Edward O. Thorp's A Man For All Markets. We really enjoy this place, and so I wrote a Yelp! review on it:
For an early dinner, we stopped in at Nolan's. We had such a nice experience, that I wrote the following Yelp! review:
Though the wind was still pretty brisk when we left the restaurant, we only hit some light sleet and rain on the drive home. But the wind just kept up and was so strong that we lost power for about an hour. Brief, but aggrivating anyway.
