The storm has left us safe and sound, and this is how it said goodbye. We are still without power and operating on a generator, so I’m going to leave it at that tonight, turn everything off, and sleep for a very long time. I'll see you tomorrow (assuming we get power back).
Thanks for letting us know you’re unharmed and safe...been thinking of you all day.
Thank you for your update on safety. We are connected, all of us with a sense of gratitude to your continued reporting.
That sunset brings to mind a favorite song, often used as a lullaby, that to me sounds like the calm after the storm. I love this version and the Youtube version has some gorgeous pictures of evening to go along. Music of my people -- one side anyway! -- "Ar Hyd y Nos" ("All through the night”)
English text from the Welsh:
All the twinkling stars are saying,
All through the night:
“Here’s the way to a world of glory,”
All through the night.
Darkness is another light
to show true beauty;
A heavenly family in silence,
O how bright a star is shining,
All through the night,
To shine on its earthly sister,
“Old age when affliction comes is like the night
“But to grace a mortal who is in her evening
“Let us put our weak light together,
“All through the night.”
G'night, y'all . . .
Excuse me while I kiss the sky
Thank you, HCR. for your brilliant morning wake-up calls, and, Buddy, thank you for your beautiful vision.

Red skies at night....
I can’t recall when I read your column for the first time. I do recall, however, how much I enjoyed it. I continue to enjoy it. I am 78. Sally and I married in 1994. The second marriage for both of us. Sal has 3 daughters I have 2 daughters. Together we have 12 grandchildren.
For Sal and I it has been and continues to be a marvelous marriage and life. Every day I read your article I am heartened by your insights into history.
I keep in mind the greatness of our Country. I knew before the 2016 election we would be in trouble if Trump were elected. My worst fears have been fulfilled. I am an eternal optimist. I am e watching the movie Rudy which I saw when it first was released. My life and dreams are very similar.
I am confident the American people wil find the right path. With writers like 👍 yourself I am sure we will find our way.
Gorgeous sunset! Enjoy the peace and quiet!
Wishing you good, restorative rest, and power on in the AM.
Gorgeous sunset!! Sleep tight.
A storm that leaves you with a sunset like that must be a good storm!
We lost power in East Blue Hill at 6:57am and generator worked all day. Power restored late afternoon, though not sure how or why. Everything is a mystery there, LOLOL. Rest, Professor. Rest.
Glad all are well. Red sky at night, sailor’s delight, right? Sleep tight.
Good to know you and yours are safe.
Good night sleep well and thank you for the beautiful beautiful picture
Rest well. Here's hoping the power comes back soon and that the generator provides power until then!
So glad you’re ok.
