Yesterday the remnants of Jeanne started to pound the Island with wind and rain. This morning both continued. I know we are seeing nothing like they had in Florida. So far our trees and power lines are up. There was some minor flooding in the usual places. The ground is saturated with water. I also know that I am very damp from dealing with the garbage and recycling today.
The town use to collect paper and plastic once a week for recycling. This year they changed it to plastics one week and paper the next. You can also put out 2 large items for pick up like a mattress and box springs or water damaged bookshelves. The rumor is that these are cost saving measures for the town. Now one week we have more plastic than we know what to do with and the other paper. I like the old system better.
