Hurricane Kyle Headed Toward Maine

A TORNADO ripped right by our farm a few years ago. Bent the birch trees down into the pond, their rubber-band trunks almost snapping.

Now Kyle, a Category 1 hurricane, is going to slam the coast before sunrise.

It feels tropical up here, raining since Friday. The atmosphere is thick, the late-summer foliage lush with a last hoorah of bursting green. Mosquitoes all over the place.

We're too far inland to feel any major effects when Kyle washes ashore.

I hope.
