Nasty Wind Storm!

On Sunday February 20th, 2011 a nasty Noreaster kicked up with 60+ MPH gusts for a sustained 12 hour. The winds ripped the covering for the Lift Bridge painting project and coated the Lakewalk with a layer of thick ice.
Thankfully it was not shipping season and all boats are still safely tucked away until the shipping season opens again in a few weeks.

Bridge painting project!

The final coverup of the south tower of the bridge was completed this weekend and now the workers can begin the task of painting the steel girders that comprise the south tower of the bridge.

The parchute type fabric protects the workers from the wind and contains the lead based paint that is being stripped off the old iron work.

The job will be complete in about 6 weeks.
