Short and sweet

Took about 20 minutes here.

It was kind of fun knowing the power was going out, in advance, and being able to wait and watch for it. Then - boom, boom - out go the lights.


At my son's art school on

At my son's art school on Williams Street they had a candlelit life drawing session !
I told him he should have charged more for the ambience!



I was driving down Green Street and suddenly everything went dark-streetlights, houses. Given the current state of affairs in our country, I was concerned that it was The Apocalypse. Alas, the only apocalypse was my thwarted attempt to go to the Co-op, they were waving people through the parking lot as they had been told they would lose power. They did not, as I found out later.



It was kind of funny driving to a meeting on the northern part of Main Street: Buildings were lit but the streetlights were out.
