It may not be awe inspiring, but it’s probably the best thing weather wise all day. Oh yes, TGIF!

The ghouls and goblins are out in force in the area of Chickadee Lane. Officer Mellin was on diligent patrol, but got a little scared and found refuge in his cruiser. He discovered that if you give a piece of candy as a sacrifice, they turned out to be pretty nice!

Academy of Performing Arts has a couple of more hours left for their Haunted House event at the Playhouse on Main St and Monument Road... Sgt McLaughlin will help with any traffic!

Arey’s River, looking toward Arey’s Pond... good night Orleans!

Officer Neill Bohlin manning the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Take Back initiative today. Well over 85 pounds of unwanted / unneeded narcotics were collected for destruction. This was one of three 5 gallon buckets that were filled with various pills.

Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency Situation A developing nor’easter is expected to begin impacting the New England region early Saturday morning through Saturday night, with the highest impacts forecast to occur during the day on Saturday. Widespread rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches are forecast with locally higher amounts of 2-4 inches possible, especially across southeastern Massachusetts. Northeast winds gusting to 30-45 MPH are likely across the region on Saturday, and gusts of up to 60 MPH are possible along the immediate south and southeast coasts, including the Cape and Islands. Beach erosion and widespread minor coastal flooding is forecast along the eastern Massachusetts coast on Saturday, especially from the North Shore to coastal Plymouth County, but also including the Cape and Islands. Some more vulnerable coastal communities such as Scituate could experience pockets of low-end moderate coastal flooding. Although it is not likely at this time, more pockets of moderate coastal flooding could occur if winds and seas build up earlier than forecast. Communities along the south coast may experience a few pockets of minor coastal flooding or splashover, but impacts in this region are expected to be minimal. Flooding is not expected to occur during the high tide late Saturday night, which is about one foot lower than the Saturday afternoon high tide. Winds and seas are expected to subside Saturday night. Impacts: Heavy rain may result in ponding of water on roads and flooding of low-lying areas. Due to saturated ground and fully leaved trees, wind gusts may cause downed trees/tree branches and isolated power outages. Areas most at risk are the Cape and Islands and Cape Ann. Widespread minor coastal flooding may cause beach erosion and inundation of vulnerable shore roads. Some roads may require brief closures around the time of high tide Saturday afternoon. Watches, Warnings, Advisories High Wind Watch Issued: October 26 at 3:33AM EDT Expiring: October 27 at 5:00PM EDT Areas affected: Barnstable; Dukes;Nantucket

Over the past two months, SRO Bohlin was able to spend his time after school coaching one of the girls soccer teams at Nauset Middle School. The season was full of sweat, a little blood, and some occasional tears (and that was just from Officer Bohlin). But a great season put together by all the teams at Nauset Middle School this year. Go Warriors!!

The Main St Halloween stroll, scheduled for tomorrow between 2:30 and 3:30 (Saturday, 10/27) is cancelled due to Mother Nature bringing a frightful Nor'easter our way. The stroll will take place on Sunday, between 2:30 and 3:30 pm, however there is no road clousure planned. Parents and Trick or Treaters should stay on the sidewalks, and cross at the designated crosswalks.
