AUTUMN WHILE IT RAINS – Garry and Marilyn Armstrong

FOTD – October 28, 2018 – October’s End


The giant storm didn’t really hit us. Apparently, it took a bigger whack at Boston and north, but here, it was just rain and a little wind. Nothing fell over. Power stayed on.

The dogs hated it, but otherwise, it went well. The grocery store made a fair bit of money. Locals cleaned the place out, just in case. Around here, they hear words like “nor’easter” and everyone’s mind says, “buried to my lips in snow and ice.”

Even though no snow was predicted, you just can’t be too careful.

    • The river winds throughout the valley. I don’t think you can live here and be more than a half a mile from a river, pond, stream or dam. You can’t always see it from the road. In some places, the banks are high. It runs through the middle of town, right next to the train tracks, but you can’t see it — too many trees, but there IS a dam in the middle of town — one of the bigger tributaries of the Blackstone. We are in a watershed, so there’s water everywhere.
