Probably the fact that school lets out 3 hours after high tide. It's not stupid at all, in fact good call. Driving is not that bad except where the roads are closed. I'm pretty sure the city and school officials can read a tide chart.
There's still some bread and milk left at Market Basket you better get up there.
My thoughts precisely. It was a good call (by those who are damned if they do/damned if they don't).

That's known as 'The Burnham House', right?

I was concerned with finding a safe place to pull over so I could get a couple of quick pics (really quick because the water was coming up fast).  I didn't notice the plate then, but yeah, I did notice in the video that it looks out-of-state.  But still, lol.  I just watched him with my mouth hanging open.  I don't know if he thought he was going to get gas or what.  The guy who took the video was on the porch of a taller building just above me.

Can we just please be done with this?  After spending too many hours tending to rellies I finally headed home to be stopped by a tree across the long, dark wooded road to my house.  Parked the car, walked up the hill, rounded up the master of the Sawzall who cut up enough of the tree to clear a path enough to get my car by after we cleared the debris, in the dark, beneath the crackling pines while the wind was just absolutely screaming.  I'm really, seriously, done with this country living stuff, lol.

Looks like quite a bit of flooding at GHS again.

Things I noticed when I was out this morning:

On the boulevard, a bench came up, a light post beside the Fishermen's statue went down.  The Building Center's sign in the little fenced in corner display is down.

There is still a lot of water in the parking lots at the cinema and the Causeway Rest.

The PD just reported that the water was starting to go over the seawall in the river next to GHS.    Number of roads are now closed off to traffic again.

The city website reports CROWD CONTROL PROBLEMS.  Too many sightseers hindering DPW and police.

Yeah. I see that some people who were posting on FB yesterday about being afraid for their kids in school during the storm don't mind driving around taking pictures today and getting in the way.    From the looks of a lot of these videos, a lot of cars will be having issues later from salt water.
