After the storm

The storm seemed to be over by late afternoon on Sunday, but power still hadn’t returned.  We’d had rehearsal as planned the day of Hurricane Irene despite the lack of a music source or coffee.  That evening, the company members were creatively assembling an elegant dinner for eight out of cold leftovers, in a dark farmhouse kitchen by candlelight, and I was out on the back porch snapping pictures of the sky after the hurricane.

A couple of us were chatting when I spotted the rainbow through the trees and we all dashed for our shoes and cameras to run out to the neighboring field for a better view.

The morning after the storm….

Believe it or not, this place is real.

    I enjoyed seeing the photos of your experience with hurricane Irene. I live in New Hampshire and was amazed at the difference from the day of the storm to the day after…from a darkened sky to not a cloud in an incredible blue sky.

  2. Wow! Those are really beautiful photos. Paradise on earth! Everything looks so clean and fresh.

      Yeah, we’re really thankful it wasn’t worse…our unanticipated problem turned out to be that we had no way to make coffee or tea the day we were without power (electric stove, not gas, in our kitchen facilities). By mid-day we were just chewing coffee beans out of desperation. But other than being soggy, cold, and going through caffeine withdrawal, we got very lucky that things weren’t worse.
