hurricane irene august 2011 mysticwe lost power at 8am on sunday 28 august. after brunch on the grill, and certain that the waters had crested safely away from the yard and basement, we ventured forth. mystic pizza was the only place open, serving coffee and slices. kids were jumping off the back end of a pick up truck into the flooded lot. our neighborhood got the electrical back in three days, but downtown was five, and others seven. no damage overall- just lots of grillin’ and lightsticks, and the radio.
