Roseledge Books made it through the weather event almost unscathed. For two hours, the electricity flickered which is worrisome as I sleep in a powered recliner that is un-get-out-able except when upright. A very small backup battery maybe promises one lift out, but just in case, I slept sitting-up which I considered a surely doable half lift. A friend with a Verizon cell phone (AT&T doesn’t work in TH) was ready to come running at my call, but the flicks never stretched into an outage. So with a little nap today, all is well. A neighbor said that Hart’s Neck (across the harbor; see webcam) lost power, but it’s still sunny so I haven’t seen any absence of light.
And once again the Sea Street roadside gully handled the inch or two of rain.
The lobster boats stayed put, and I don’t know where the yachts on rental moorings went, but summer runabouts were hauled, as truck after truck lined up at the public landing to do their end-of-summer duty. Yikes!
The wind swirled in from the southwest which is the closed end of the harbor. So the wind pushed the water out of the harbor which was a relief at high tide time to those right on the water. As a winter-Midwesterner, may I say that the wind was a modest blow at best, but I did put the porch chairs away for the day. So overall, a big whew!
Today Roseledge Books and the world nearby dried out with a sunny, cool breezy, end-of-summer day, but weather for the coming week is to be sunny, 70’s, and a bit of summer backlash, I hope. More book and reader news next time.
( Comment reply: RB has no insulation which means that however damp Roseledge insides get during foggy or humid days, the breezes sweep right through the single-board walls and dry it out in minutes — or so it seems. Having no insulation is one big reason I have only paperbacks and the reason they only curl, but never mildew. And paperbacks weigh less than a six-pack, the sailors assure me.)
