They aren’t happening here, but a hurricane in the mid-Atlantic and a series of explosions near Andover are causing nightmares for many other people, including much of my family.
My aunt and uncle live in North Andover. They’re fine, Aunt Nancy reports, but had to evacuate. She said they are one town over, safe, but are worried about friends. They were having trouble reaching friends and neighbors last night.
Further south, my mother and stepfather’s house is in Virginia, in the outer bands of the storm but in a likely spot to get lots of rain for the next few days. They are traveling out of the country right now, but are likely to return to quite a mess.
I was speaking with one of our clients, too, who has a second home in Wilmington. She has neighbors watching it, and says they are on some of the higher ground there, but it looks like they got a direct hit from what I can tell in the news.
Hurricanes and gas explosions. Quite an end to the summer.
