It’s coming A Nor’easter they have held their finger up compared the spaghetti plots interviewed a guy with arthritis unfurled the flags sounded the alarm and we wait listening to the buoy bells buying batteries and snacks moving back from an unseen tide knowing it will come bending trees scattering empty trash barrels rattling a balky shed door tearing at the edges of the bay we know it’s coming A Nor’easter And we wait!

Yep! Some excitement. We will survive this one, like all the rest. Beer, Chips, and some good flicks. Well said, John.

nicely described, john! we had the same warnings and it did rain pretty hard this morning but at the moment the sun has popped out - so much for accuracy when it comes to weather...
