This photo was taken about 8:15 Friday evening from Westford, just over the town line south of Route 40, looking northwest into Groton. The fast-moving storm front spread along Townsend Road north of West Groton, stretching to Rte 119 near NWRA headquarters by the Nashua River, and then to Chicopee Row just north of the cemetery, onto Martinis Pond and Old Dunstable Roads through to Hoyts Wharf, Cow Pond, and then to the north end of Long Sought-For Pond, wrecking havoc and mayhem for 10 miles through the heart of our town.
