Well, there's certainly nothing boring about this week! We start off with high winds, rain, power outages, trees falling (not as badly as last year's surprise storm), what fun!
It appears that we are better prepared, and certainly that CL&P is better prepared. Although I will say that the newscasters still seem intent on putting life and limb in harm's way in order to get the storm scoop. Other than that people appear to be in a better place and with any luck, all this will be over this same time tomorrow.
And . . . that means that Halloween may go on as planned. If not, I hope everyone just moves it one day and let the kids have their night of fun. We all need our 'fun size' rush. There just won't be many leaves crunching under their feet. Still, its better than the snow and busted limbs we had last year. So, I'm thankful.
Once we get a breather from a storm and the storming of little ghosts and goblins, we can get on to the arts!
Thursday night from 6 to 9 p.m. is another installation of Imagine Main Street - with most of the activities happening at the Army-Navy Club, across from the Forrest Street parking lot, and at MCC on Main for their new Paper New England exhibit. So come down for the fun and help support IMS (there is a $5 donation request at the door to help support the expenses related to these events).
And . . . for those looking for a little history, fabulous costumes, beautiful set and amazing music, don't miss Little Theatre of Manchester's production of 1776. Music, lyrics and book by Edwards and Stone, it's a beautiful and inspirational story and not to be missed. I must admit that at Sunday's rehearsal I shed a tear at the point where John Adams asks for a "Hear ye" for the man who was one of his threats to independence. Respect in politics did exist once. The show runs November 2-4, 8-11 and 15-18. Most tickets are available at the door, running $29 to $22, and the final weekend offers a $10 ticket for students (as available, no refunds or further discounts).
So, come visit historic Cheney Hall for a great historic tale, and enjoy the rest of the week for tricks and cultural treats!
