“Let the wind take you away-y-y” (Steppenwolf)

On a magic carport ride…

Everyone has seen a flying carpet, that’s old news. But have you ever seen a flying carport? Brewster Police Chief Marcos Ruiz reports that on the night of Feb. 1, at about 1:30 a.m., a Brewster police officer snapped this photo of a flying carport that was lifted by strong winds blowing that night onto power lines above a nearby building. Ruiz said that a few minutes after this photo was taken the winds blew the structure back to the ground. No injuries were reported. / Courtesy Brewster Police Department
