December 20, 2020 AsktheBuilder Newsletter


Wait a minute! It looks like you’re trying to sneak past me. I know you’re a new subscriber and might be a little shy. Welcome! Right here up top is where each week I love to say “Hello!” to each new subscriber like you.

Now, that being said, you could have been receiving this newsletter for so many moons that you distinctly recall when I tried to calm the nerves of those who bought gutter guards thinking that all their icicle issues would melt away forever! HAH!

CLICK or TAP HERE to understand why icicles form on gutter guards and more importantly, HOW TO STOP icicles from forming on gutters and gutter guards.


This is a special edition of the newsletter. It hearkens back to my days as a Boy Scout. It’s all about being prepared – for anything.

Please read the next story. I thank my lucky stars for being prepared three days ago.

Winter Storm Gail – A Vixen

Three days ago I saw something I’ve never ever seen before.

This photo was taken at the height of Winter Storm Gail in central NH on December 17, 2020.

I BEG YOU to CLICK or TAP HERE to read about how Gail dumped 39 inches of frozen water on me in twelve hours. Do the math.

I’ve got all sorts of videos, photos, and a tale you’ll not believe when you read the story.

Merry Christmas!

I want to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas. That’s what I celebrate. If you celebrate some other holiday this time of year, I hope you have a great time and it’s all you want it to be.

I’ll have a short newsletter for you next Sunday. I always take the week between Christmas and New Years off to do some strategic thinking and planning.
