The Storm

The storm came almost on schedule.  As soon as the wet harvest started the storm started.  On a Friday it dropped lowering clouds in the sky and then blew hard through the night.  On Saturday it lifted for blue skies all day, but on Sunday it was back, and it rained for another four days.  At times hard driving wind, at times gentle drifting drops.  There was so much water pouring down from the sky that it seemed it was meant to flood the bogs.

The work went on.  The main Cataumet bogs were cleared over the weekend and the teams moved to Falmouth.  By the time that the clouds cleared and this fair weather and somewhat ill photographer caught up with them again on Wednesday, they were halfway through the immense bogs off Carriage Shop Road.

Big clouds boomed through the sky, the light glared on the water, and the birds scattered when the water pickers went into their pools.  The harvest went on, life went on, and the storm cleared.
