Well, August marches on and although there has been a recent crispness to the air, heat and humidity are still with us at times. I missed the thunderstorm that struck our area last Friday in the early afternoon, but when I arrived home that evening, I found plants, twigs, and branches strewed everywhere.
At first I didn’t even notice the tree leaning on my house. Somehow it broke and appears to have bounced on the ground before bending toward my dining room. I am assuming that is what took the brunt of the impact and meant no damage to my roof. I feel very blessed and also very grateful to Justin who came the next day and spent over an hour rigging lines and pulleys, then safely taking it to the ground. He even cut it up and pushed it over the bank for me.
The holiday weekend is fast approaching with many activities both in Plymouth and neighboring towns. At the Notch, don’t forget Shakespeare Alive at noon on Saturday and the Folk and Blues festival on both Saturday and Sunday from 2-5 PM. You might even be able to squeeze in a visit to the Plymouth farmers market on Sunday afternoon, too!
