The weather is always so glorious after a hurricane. Clear blue skies and bright sunshine today. Damage to the Botanical Gardens is limited to a few branches down and very little broken glass, so we’re feeling pretty good here. We even have electricity in the greenhouse building.
There are countless fallen trees throughout South County. It’s sad to see some of those old giants go.
This one was decayed almost completely through.
As of this morning, there are 28,000 customers in South County without electricity. ( At home in West Kingston, I’m one of them.) It sounds like it could be days before power is fully restored. But if that’s the worst of it, we came through OK. There’s nothing like camping at home! What’s your Hurricane Irene story?
