Most of us on Cape Cod have been familiar for decades now with artist Susan Baker’s T-shirt design, “Our Evacuation Plan: Swim East.” It says it all.
More than 20 years ago, when I lived in an apartment right on the bay, I was part of a citizen radiation-monitoring network along the coast that, for several years, took twice-daily readings and logged them along with wind direction and other weather-related details.
