PHOTO OF THE DAY
An armada of trucks gathered this morning on Route 2.

The trucks are getting ready to clean up after the devastating fires in the mountains ahead:
restoring access to electricity towers, checking power lines, shoring up steep rock faces where the vegetation holding the soil together has disappeared and fixing places where in a rainstorm erosion could close the road — among many other possible hazards. As one of the drivers told me, “there’s a helluva lot that needs doing.”
Incidentally, if you think one of those vehicles wouldn’t be of much use in this heavy work, you’d be right. That’s my little orange-colored Kia in there while I was making a nuisance of myself asking ill-informed questions.
