Quite a few things have been going on lately. Yesterday evening a rain & wind storm passed over the village, bringing winds as high as 64 mph. Earlier in the afternoon a fire erupted in a home that was being remodeled. Apparently fumes from chemicals that were being used to refinish a floor caught fire and injured one of the workers. Also several residents were transported off the island and treated for various medical emergencies. Again, we are thankful for our faithful volunteers, both fire fighters and emergency medical technicians.
The good news is that the weather today is superb. The sun is shining brightly, a breeze is rustling the trees, and the temperature is just right for shirtsleeves or a light jacket. I believe I'll take a stroll along the beach after we close.
