ETA - 28 hrs. and counting!

Traffic at the boat landing in town

The media continues to alert the coastal residents of New England and the Massachusetts governor has officially declared a state of emergency. I tell you, I took my morning walk and all was serene and tranquil at the beaches, even tonight the water remains calm and inviting. The chaos I found was at the boat landing and the traffic to get the boats out of the harbor was crazy for such a small town like mine. I am hoping to document more as the storm approaches assuming it remains safe. And still, I have no time to focus on my creative process and my next art piece; this storm has been an exciting diversion.

More to follow...


  1. Hoping you do indeed stay safe! I remember recent flooding in areas not too far from my house. I couldn't understand what all the fuss is about as we had none near us and I live right by a river! And it really didn't seem like we had all that much rain this summer. By the way, it looks as though you live in a charming harbor town!

  2. Hi Autumn, I think it's possible the media over reacted because they didn't want to mess around after the Katrina disaster. I also think Cape Cod has to be on guard more than where I am but as they keep saying on the news, "plan for the worst, hope for the best".

  3. We've been keeping a close eye on this since we have friends and family all up the east coast. We rode out a few hurricanes during our days in Virginia Beach and I wouldn't wish that "fun" on anyone. Thankfully, it looks like you missed the worst of it. Whew!

    Now, go get busy. I'm ready for some more of your FINE art... :P


  4. Don, the storm was a definite dud, the media was so off base this time! I do need to get back to making FINE art but for right now I am finalizing the switch over to a new web host; transferring my domain name has been a lot more complicated and is taking longer than I thought and once it's completed (Wednesday) I will be ready for new work. If all else fails, I start teaching end of the month.
