The power is back on. I never thought I would miss electricity so much. We recently drove by Walden Pond. Thoreau’s closing words were :”I left for as good as reason as I came.” Well I like the comforts of home as we say.
Newport fared well, altogether. trees down, damage at beaches, lost electricity, but not everyone. We tried to drive around yesterday morning but the roads near any ocean views were still closed as the cleanup was in progress.
Not even all the leaves were blown off the trees. We had several hours of hurricane winds but out of the north which kept the surge from being anything like it might have been. I consider we were lucky.
