Before this week's blizzard, Justin Nielsen made enough food to last a few days - just in case the power went out.
"I cooked everything the other day because I thought - being on Facebook, seeing what's going on with other people - we're going to lose it at any time," says Nielsen.
Nielsen's power stayed on, for most of the time. Now his family has a lot of leftovers to plow through.Nielsen also has a lot of work to catch up on.
"I have not been able to take clients out to look at homes," he says, "And I have a good list of people who are looking to buy now."
And of course, the snow makes it all but impossible for potential home sellers to make improvements.
"There are a couple homes that are getting ready to go on the market," he says. "This doesn't help."
Then there are the homes with roof damage. Nielsen heard there were few cave-ins this week. He'll be looking into them in the next few days, while he tries to clean up his own house.
