The 28th brought no sun dogs, no sun rings, no lunar rings. The weather was hazy, the sky was lowering, and wind was a steadily increasing breeze from the northeast.
Part of this day was devoted to storm preparations on the Cape. Time to take the ferry over to The Main. Vineyard Sound had steady traffic. Fishing boats were returning to New Bedford, to wait out the storm in the harbor, behind the hurricane barrier.
Into Woods Hole.
Seal, basking on Woods Hole rock, seems unconcerened.
Storm preparations were underway at the Oceanographic Institution. Big trucks and heavy machinery was going here and there, anything loose was being taken away or tied down. The Atlantis II had extra lines attached to the dock.
Preparing for a storm is a good idea.
