Freehold, while beautiful, has a somewhat disagreeable climate. Winters are cold – very cold – while summers are hot and can be very humid. Precipitation is plentiful during all seasons. As one would assume, the form of precipitation varies with the temperatures.
Winter snow is beautiful – especially if you can view it through a window while sitting in front of a fireplace. At some point that snow will melt and run down into the yard, adding to the moisture in the ground that will expand and contract, adding to the possibility of developing cracks in your sidewalks, driveway, and foundation.
During the past winter of 2017 – 2018, Freehold enjoyed so much snow that there were an unusually high number of “snow days,” when the snow was so deep that office workers were ordered to stay home. What a treat it is to have your boss’ blessing to take a day off. It would be pure heaven unless, of course, your children are snowed in with you. You may need be creative in finding activities to occupy your kids so you can relax.
