At 4:00 pm this afternoon, power was restored to the last area of Manchaug Pond. We suspect this tree on Manchaug Road just after Holbrook’s Campground was the culprit.
Hurricane Irene left the area littered with debris of branches and leaves primarily from oak and pine trees. Large trees came down on all roadsides around the lake and even into the lake!
During the storm, the rain gauge overflowed after reaching 5 inches with no one willing to go out in the wind and heavy rains to empty it.
Monday and Tuesday brought cool air putting nighttime temps in the 50’s, with daytime blue skies and sunshine making the cleanup much easier.
