Just in from our RI bureau Chief….

So windy it’s impossible to stand up.

Sea foam all over road.

And angry seas…

Power on now but no TV or internet. Power sporadic though – been on and off.

Swanton, are your seas similarly angry?

  1. The wind is out of the southwest and my town faces east so there’s nothing to stir up the surf. It’s sunny and breezy. Pretty day

        1. Aha. White horses are big waves, like white caps? Never heard that term. Thanks.

          I do know the White Horse Pike in New Jersey…..do I get any points for that???

        2. Route 30 is its more common name. As a kid from Delaware going to Philly often I remember my dad referring to it as the White Horse. Also when I worked at TV Guide in Radnor, that long stretch through all the Main Line towns, Lancaster Avenue, was also Route 30.

        3. I recall that back in the 50’s/’60’s, “white horse” was slang for heroin, not that I knew other than hearsay.

        4. That’s news to me. I’ll go look it up.

          Yes, according to Urban Dictionary:
          White Horse:
          Heroin. As contrasted with white pony, slang for cocaine, in the 1983 pop hit “White Horse” by music group “Laid Back”.
          “If you want to ride, don’t ride the white horse.”

          “The TV Show ‘Twin Peaks’ used a white horse to symbolize heroin addiction.”

  2. I didn’t mean to make light of the situation here only that my town seems to have dodged a major bullet. Power outages caused the town’s schools to be called off and there are some downed trees, Nothing serious. Nearby towns didn’t fare so well. Plenty of folks without electricity and don’t know when it will be restored. Traffic is a mess according to local tv news.
    We still haven’t had a frost yet let long a hard frost. Our lawn is green as are the leaves on many of our trees.

    1. My three cherry trees look like they are in full summer mode. Fully green and leafed. I don’t ever remember they stayed green this long. Is it unusual?

      Bedford seems to have recovered from the winds and rain and downed trees. All roads are reopened and I think almost everyone has power back.

      Update: Bedford PD says 816 still w/o power. Not huge but not inconsequential either.

    1. I don’t disclose my specific RI locale like I do my NY one. Lots of my readers know anyway but it’s just one of those things I keep out of the blog. Thanks for understanding.
