It's funny -- most of the rest of the world has moved on from Hurricane Irene -- Katia is now on the horizon -- but Irene is still very much a reality around here. I'm pleased to say my sister Barb, who lives in Connecticut, finally has power again. She's still living with the smell of rotting sea creatures, but at least she can take a hot shower. We still have piles and piles of downed trees all over town, but Greenport is back on its feet. When I paid my utility bill yesterday, I wrote a thank you note to the crew who worked so diligently to get us electrified again.
I didn't take many pictures and what I did take are not the greatest, but here they are.
