This morning I drove down to
Main Street to see how the old town fared
last night. After parking in the Old Mill Bakery Café parking lot I walked across
the bridge to check out the river.
Unlike yesterday, the Old Bakery Café was closed. Fortunately I saw on facebook this morning that Bean Hollow was open so I grabbed a cup of coffee before heading back up the hill.
People were taking pictures of the water in
Columbia too. Fellow HoCo blogger, Clayton, sent
me this picture of the lakefront from
this morning. He also noted that “ Town
Center Clyde's and
Lakeside Roastery both were open yesterday morning, but not today.”
Last night we lost power at 8:34 PM but much to our surprise it came back on at 9:20 PM. I salute the men in the yellow slickers and hardhats who labored through the evening to keep the juices flowing. As was pointed out earlier by Marshmallow Man, the Derecho storm this summer may have actually mitigated the damage from
That storm did a good job of clearing out much of the rotted limbs and weak
trees before Frankenstorm arrived.
At WSw it is calm right now. The lowest pressure recorded during the storm was 28.21 inHg at 11:16 PM last night. Right now it has risen back to 28.95 inHg and is headed back up.
Today, life slowly returns to normal.
