All Things New Hampshire: Monday, Dec. 1, 2014
Good morning! I hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend-and that most of it was spent with the lights on. We were one of the lucky ones-despite a lot of flickering at our home in Dover, we never lost power. I know of many friends and colleagues whose Thanksgiving was spent eating out-wherever you celebrated I hope it was with friends, family, and loved ones-which is really all that matters anyway.
