Welcome. Edgartown News was born from the simple fact that I have ink and Dektol in my veins and I need to write and photograph more than I need air or food, and from my love for this little town where I grew up and raised my family, the town I have left a few times but can't quite shake for good. Here you will find wanderings and musings, photographs and commentary; the people, places, and happenings - past and present - of a small island town: my home town.

Hurricane!

Hurricane Sandy - which advance reports were touting as a "Frankenstorm," due to an unusual confluence of weather systems - arrived in the wee hours on Monday. So far, Edgartown has not been hit as hard even as near-by Oak Bluffs (I may have been the last car passing into that town via Beach Road this morning before it was closed for the day; I have since heard that the road near the sea wall has completely washed out), and certainly the Vineyard is not being hit as hard as New Jersey is currently being slammed (as I write on Monday evening); these photos being a somewhat relaxed photo journalistic report of a meteorological event that is, farther down the US Atlantic coast, in the process of creating a disaster zone.
