The ambulances have been so busy I think we may just close up shop in September and tell people to fend for themselves. Enough already! The police departments are overburdened and the highway department personnel must be really tired of picking up people's trash. It's amazing to me how people will pile trash by the receptacles at the heads of the beaches, not bothering to take anything home with them at all. We always take our trash home with us and throw it away in our own receptacles, but it seems that people will have parties and then leave every bit of their trash for the municipality to take care of. It's shameful really. Bags and bags overflowing the cans on any given Sunday morning.
September is only a few weeks away and at this time every year we're all looking forward to it. We love getting our space back. Its rather like when your kids come home from college in the summer and then leave again in the fall. You clean up, settle back in, and enjoy getting things back to normal again. Soon enough the "kids" will be leaving East Hampton and we'll have all our space back again. It sounds wonderful to me...
