On The Road for the weekend

We're going on the road this weekend. We've been invited to an old fashioned clam bake in West Wareham, MA. We met our hosts--Bruce and Sue--on our Alaskan adventure last summer. This is an annual event for them and includes their extended family and friends. Bruce promises lots of seafood and fresh produce all we have to do is bring our own beverages. We will, however, also bring a quart and a half of refrigerator pickles and a loaf or two of zucchini bread.

I've got a case of beer (but probably will not drink it all) and Terry's set aside four bottles of Finger Lakes' wine so we're set. Should be a good time.


Our travels will take us up I-88 toward Albany before we head east to the Mass Pike. Some of that area was pretty hard hit by Irene but I've heard nothing of road closures. As of mid-day yesterday (Wednesday), a lot of the National Grid power customers in that area of New York and east into Massachusetts were still without power. Bruce and Sue were on the east side of the strength of the the storm. Since Bruce hasn't said anything, I'm going to assume that they are and have been fine.
