Thursday, March 1: Joy and I had planned to spend Thursday and Friday nights with friends and family at Gunstock Mountain in Gilford, NH. Didn't quite work out, but almost: In anticipation of the storm, I stayed at home with Kira, and Joy (who had to fly to Tokyo on Saturday), drove to Gilford early on the morning of March 2. Thursday was pretty much uneventful all day, with the exception of that it was really nice out, unseasonably warm!

Friday, March 2: We got up at 4:30 in the morning. The winds were building, and it was raining steady. Because we have just one car at the moment, the plan was for Joy to drive to Logan from Gilford on Saturday morning, and for me to Uber to the airport from Duxbury to see her off and collect the car.
Joy made the 3 hour drive to Gilford in time to arrive for breakfast, but just as the power wast lost in Duxbury. The wind was howling, and our dining room windows blew open because they weren't latched shut. I popped them back in, and there wasn't any damage. Fortunately for Kira, she's stone deaf so was unfazed by all the commotion.
Saturday, March 3: The rain has abated, but it's still really windy.
Sunday, March 4: Power was restored to parts of Duxbury, including Winsor Street. High Street would be without power until Monday afternoon.
Monday, March 5: Kira and I spent Sunday night at our family's Winsor Street cottage. When we got up we drove to French Memories for coffee and a croissant (we shared the croissant), then headed to High Street to see if the power had been restored - which it hadn't. But the good news was that Eversource had equipment and personnel up and down the street. By 3:00 PM our power was back.
Thursday, March 8: Kira and I braced ourselves for the second Nor'easter which turned out to be a lot gentler than the first one.
