Is Everyone Warm and Dry?

How bout some stories in the comments of this post as to how all my peeps are holding up in this latest round of rain.

I follow Matt Noyes on Twitter and he had been harping all week about the severity of the flooding from this latest deluge. He pretty much nailed it. Gotta give the man credit.

Cathy Writes-

There is so much to see from this view – the lights reflecting on the water, the houses on the hills in East Gloucester, the steeples of Our Lady of Good Voyage Church and Our Lady herself, watching over the city.

One Hour At A Time Gang Clean Up This Saturday

A bunch of folks met each Saturday morning last year to spend a little time outdoors and clean up City Streets that could use a little trash pick up.  Our very own very good buddy Donna Ardizzoni fills folks in on where to meet and everyone sets off to clean up a certain section of the City each Saturday morning.  It only takes an hour or two of time but you get out in the fresh air, meet like minded folks that love our city and feel great about what you’ve done afterward.

From Donna Ardizzoni-

Hi All:

Hope all had a great weekend and are dry….

When:                                  Saturday:             April 3, 2010 8:00AM

Where:                                 Meet at St. Peter’s Square

What to do:                        I think we should go down Main and Rogers and also some of the Boulevard..  especially if we have some brooms, shovels, etc.                                                        Due to the weather coming in, we need to clean as much as we can especially on the streets and near the Tavern.

Thanks to all and please pass the word..  we will make this city shine…  and show how beautiful it is

I will bring the bags from the DPW…

Stay dry…..

Thomas Writes-

Another stitched-together series of shots from our 3rd floor perch over Front Beach & Sandy Bay in Rockport, MA. One of those wild summer thunderstorms — brief but intense.
