Katelyn Damon took Elliott and Kaitlyn Duggan took Bode to the library. Ashley Bryan read the story of “The Lion and the Mouse” to them, after which they put together lions and added mice to their illustrations.
The storm knocked out Islesford’s internet connection on Friday night. Nate Brimmer, from Axiom, sent a message at 8 p.m. saying “Internet is working on Islesford again. Thanks to intrepid citizens who helped re-patch some cables, we were able to move traffic to the backup link!” The rest of us add our thanks to Nate’s. The wind didn’t back down until Sunday, but the cables held.
The storm was powerful. Mitchell McCormick took pictures down at the dock at a high tide. The ramp went up from the co-op to the float in a combination of high tide, full moon and massive storm. There was a little rain Friday morning, but the rest of the weekend was dry on the islands, not a repeat of one of the blizzards that have clobbered New England in the past.
The Longfellow School Poetry Celebration scheduled for Friday, March 2, was postponed due to the dangerous seas and high winds. A new date has not yet been set but will be determined soon by students and faculty.
