Ouch! That storm was a doozy (see page 12). Last week we lost power and it messed up our schedule getting the paper out, but we managed it.
This week, we have some great pictures of the damage that little no-namer did.
A few boats at the marina got loose from the docks and ended up on the rocks. The big trucks had to come and pluck them out of the water as the wind died down a bit. But, it was still pretty windy. We got some great pictures of it. We also got a few good pictures of some of the trees that came down around town. A couple of them ended up on top of cars. Now THAT’s a big ouch.
Next Thursday is Veterans Day and our annual parade (see page 3). It’s nice to have things getting back to normal after all the cancellations last year.
Be sure to get out there and let our veterans know we appreciate them. Line the route. Take flags with you. Take the kids.
Then be sure to go to the high school for the raising of the “Big Flag.” If you’ve never seen that, take advantage of the opportunity now. It’s quite the sight. Not only is it spectacular as it goes up just because of how big it is (50×30 feet), but against the backdrop of our magnificent high school, it’s downright breathtaking.
There are also events in New Bedford, also on page 3.
We change the clocks this weekend…sniff, sniff.
It’s time to fall back. That means you set your clocks back one hour earlier on Sunday morning at 2, or before you go to bed on Saturday night.
Sunset will be around 4:30 after the change. Ugh…
Luckily, it doesn’t last too long. Here’s to spring!
There’s other stuff in here, of course. Lots of great happenings are going on again. Be sure to check out every page. And be sure to notice who our advertisers are so you can tell them you saw their ads in the Neighb News.
Until next week then…see ya
