Crazy CT Storm

So here we are day four of the aftermath of the crazy CT storm. A Northeaster blew through here on Saturday and left us without power, without water, trees and wires all over the roads and schools closed.
Makes you realize the horrendous scale of Katrina and the Haiti earthquake. At least we have warm weather and crews all over the place trying to put the towns back together.

ESB has not lost power and we have some great storm picks. Pam is reading "Ordinary Thunderstorms" by William Boyd. A piece of fiction that explores how one chance occurrence can evolve rapidly into a life-leveling storm. She is totally enjoying it.

A classic storm tale is R.A.Scotti's piece " Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938." This detailed retelling of the 1938 hurricane that ripped across seven Northeastern states and killed 682 people will keep you turning pages well into the night even by candlelight.

"Not Without Hope" is a new book about a tragedy at sea that saw four friends embark on a fishing trip during a blustery day, with only one man returning two days later. Witnessing incredible heroism and unspeakable tragedy, the author Nick Schuyler creates a story of survival, friendship, resolve and courage. Stop by for a copy.
