“It is only in sorrow that bad weather masters us; in joy we face the storm and defy it.”–Amelia Barr
There will be no poetry; there will certainly be no wise-cracks. I will even refrain from New Jersey jokes.
We had no power for six days, but on balance we were extremely lucky. How is the following for an equation of everyday life?
325 +7 = 0.
For my readers on the metric system I will put it this way.
Translation? 325 feet (~100m) above sea level and 7 miles (~11km) inland equals no flooding damage. But as the pictures herein demonstrate, we had plenty of tree damage and some fence damage to go with it. Nothing came near the house. My thoughts and best wishes go out to those in NY and NJ who were not so spared (and there was plenty of damage here in CT, fortunately we did not get the worst of it).
