The common misconception is that a mountain of snow is a big deal. The big issue on the Cape is wind, particularly wrapped around freezing temperatures. Some companies will set a bench mark for snow accumulation, wind speed, power outages or, believe it or not, leave the decision to the owner most often if not exclusively subject to a fee. For me, the criteria for a storm is subjective and most certainly predicated on any number of variables. A sustained power outage in September is a nuisance while mid February is a bit of a gut check.
About Nauset Management
As a lifelong resident of the outer Cape I was the third generation to pick up the mantel in the family construction business. In my early twenties, I called the Cape my home on weekends as I spent several years working for a variety of off-Cape commercial construction companies. My site supervision resume includes two supermarkets, two HUD projects, a funeral home and a handful of steel industrial buildings as well as various restaurant and office remodels.
