Shelton St. on Truck Route??

November 15th, 2012 by

Remember the old “one of these things doesn’t belong here” line from Sesame Street?

That seems to be the case, as a loaded log truck was photographed turning from East Shelton St. onto S. Main, recently.

The storm surge filled many homes with as much as 4 feet of sea water and although the water has receded the structures are saturated. There are hundreds of restoration contractors like us there but they can barely scratch the surface of the work needed to be done.”
