FALMOUTH – Telephone poles were snapped at the base. Trees were down all over town. Wires were hanging like cooked spaghetti. And a police officer kept people away from a live wire that, he said, “is on fire.” Yes, these are big storm photos.
The live wire was on Gifford Street. Trees were down everywhere. A large section of Woods Hole Road was closed. And the telephone poles on Route 28 at the hospital lights were a sight to behold.
These were a few of the things we saw in a day of wandering the town of Falmouth trying to see what we could of the storm damage from Thursday’s storm. Many times, we could not pass a road. Sometimes we ran into more than one obstacle trying to get down a road.
We ran into trees, wires, and deep puddles. It was a crazy afternoon and we’re frankly in awe of all of those who helped clean up this mess.
Storms are cool, unless they are not. This one was interesting, for sure.
