What was once a rather charming street—tall trees, arching branches, voluminous shade—has been destroyed. Many of the roads were blocked with debris and branches, whole trees trunks, power lines, crushed cars, for days—some still are. Most people did not have power for a week. People were caught by the suddenly rising tides and drowned. People were struck by trees. The wind blew like I’d never seen before…but we were lucky. The block where I live turned out to be a little island of electricity, so we had lights and heat and refrigeration throughout the storm. Interesting, John and Anna, that you both close with the word wonder. It was a wonder.
