On Cape Cod, ‘we got lucky’
The day on Cape Cod alternated between clouds, light rain, and bright sun, but the weather was mild. It was the day after Sandy. Norman Bacon, a retired highway worker and fire spotter, said some beaches suffered erosion from the outer bands of the hurricane, but few homeowners suffered anything other than temporary loss of power. On Chatham’s bucolic Main Street, shopkeepers were open for business as usual, nearly all the plywood removed from windows by noon.
