My cooking and blogging is on hiatus as a result of Hurricane Irene and the resulting extended stay in Boston.  We were at a wedding this weekend and stayed in Newburyport.  This sign was posted on an old building between Newburyport and Plum Island.  I'm not sure whether it is up year-round (from its weathered appearance, I think it might be) or if it was up specifically for this weekend, but the sign just about sums up the state of affairs in New England on Saturday and early Sunday.  Consider yourself warned!
