post Sandy update in the 603

I am happy to report that here in Wolfeboro, NH, we weathered the storm quite well. The power only flickered a few times, and there was a minor roof leak near the chimney. I was quite worried about my daughter in CT. since she lives on the Quinnipiac river, near the mouth of Long Island Sound. Her neighborhood had an evacuation notice but she and her neighbors opted to stay put. Thankfully at high tide the water didn't cross the road as predicted but it did flood the entire park across the street. I grabbed this photo from her facebook page...















When I talked to her this morning the water had already receded and the next tide was not expected to be as high.
It's another no school day, which means our raku workshop is postponed until Thursday. It also means that my sister (a middle school French and Spanish teacher) is home again and we get to spend more time together! We were just saying that it feels like Christmas vacation with all of us hanging out together in our p.j.'s until noon time!
Unfortunately, as you all know, other parts of the northeast have not been as fortunate. The devastation we have watched on the news is horrible. I hope those less fortunate than me have a safe, warm place to go to, and that their lives will return to normal soon.

  1. Glad to hear that you've come through this without any major damage. For as bad as this was, I think it could have been a lot worse if those winds were higher.
