Well, that tropical storm is now visiting us here in New Jersey, and it’s a lulu.
I found a sheltered spot outside where I could have my cigar and watch the storm, but had to cut it short. Big branches were breaking off the trees and coming down all over. Patty’s car is now surrounded by tree wreckage, but happily has suffered no direct hits so far. Please pray it doesn’t!
The wind is simply furious, there’s going to be quite a mess to clean up later. Our lights have been flickering: please pray they don’t go out altogether.
Somehow I’m supposed to write a Newswithviews column. Lots of luck with that.
