Snow is the topic of discussion today and not so much the amount but more the lack of snow we have been getting in this area. I lived in a depressed part of New Hampshire, nobody is hiring the economy is non existent here. Berlin use to be known for paper mills and night life, but once the mills closed everything changed and everyone lost everything. The banks own 40% of the homes here and that is a fact. The only economy they have left here is the snow plowing, removal, skiing, snow mobiles, hiking, etc. Without snow its really hard for people to make money to live and pay the bills.
My family and i have been living here for about 4 years and when we first moved here the snow was insane! Start of November we would have 40 inches of snow piled high from plows pushing it off of the road. Everyone needed to either shovel and remove snow or they had to hire someone to do it. Since things have changed and we have not had alot of snow the drugs have taken over and the crime is increasing. I have a few pictures of how nice this place is and it really does have potential.
We still have ATV season which is awesome and i participate in that but overall the money is gone from the area. If you work from home and can travel anywhere and still make a living then i think you could get a home here cheap if that is something your interested in. The average home price here in about 65,000 dollars and if you put 15 thousand or more down your mortgage would be less than 400 bucks a month. Taxes have gone up but your only looking at another 100-200 a month depending on the home. Although all hope is almost lost for the locals people who come from out of town can capitalize.
