As we neared Verona on the West Essex Trail this last Sunday, an ominious sound was heard in the distance. A muffled thumping, it got louder and louder as we went, until we realized it was the Verona High School Marching Band rehearsing.
Well it was a cold and even slightly snowy January day, so we went to the beach. Son A. hadn’t been to NJ in over two years, and wanted to see what was what. A lot has been cleaned up, but the amount that still has to be done is staggering.
