|"Noel" gives the lights a fright!
Volunteers -- buoyed by Indian
summer weather -- pegged Saturday, Nov. 3, as the day for stripping
paint and removing the landing deck at Harbor of Refuge, plugging some
holes and fixing windows at Delaware Breakwater East End, and closing
both lighthouses for the winter.
With forecasts for winds gusting to 40 mph
and seas reaching 10 feet, the work trip was definitely postponed.
It's tentatively been rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 17.
hurricane passing well off shore didn't deliver quite the
threatened punch. But it was still clear trying to land and
work at either of the lighthouses would have been a very bad idea!
