8/29/11 After the storm

Not that bad here -my neighbors rain gauge said 2.6 inches of rain. Windy but didn't do more than break a couple of basil branches in my yard. Just when we thought we had sailed through, the power went out ( 6:40 pm) and didn't come back until 3:00 this afternoon . Kelley wondered what was the deal with the candles and flashlight . I was worried I would lose all my freshly frozen vegetables but they did OK too. Today we just walked around the neighborhood and then downtown for a bit.


  1. Sounds like you made it through without much damage. That's good.

  2. Hi John!

    Good to hear that you are fine! Reading newspapers and watching TV gives sometimes an unbiased version of reality, so it's hard to judge what to believe...


  3. Thanks, John

    Hi Mats - it all depended where you were. further south the storm was stronger and there was severe damage and some loss of life. It had weakened by the time it got to Maine and even here there was more damage and a lot more rain in other parts of the state. We were lucky
