Good morning, East Hampton. Hopefully you are drying out from what was a very soggy Tuesday.

— You'll be glad to know that Wednesday is supposed to bring lots of sunshine with a high of 79F.

— I'm not sure if that's good or bad weather for the first day of school, which is where Montauk students are headed this morning. I hope all the kids have a great first day of school. We'd love to see your kids' back to school photos (we know you're taking them!). Send them to Taylor.Vecsey@patch.com for a gallery. And, for those of you with kids heading back to school on Monday, remember to send us a pic then.

— Speaking of back to school. The Springs School Board of Education held a meeting on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. to officially hire Jay Finello as the interim district superintendent. Finello takes over for Dominic Mucci, a retiree whom the district hired in 2012. His waiver from the state was not renewed for another year, the district announced on Tuesday.

Rosh Hashanah begins on Wednesday night at sundown. Please check out our services schedule. L'Shana Tova!

— Our hats off to the firefighters from East Hampton, Sag Harbor, and Amagansett who spent many hours on Tuesday helping to fight a fire in Water Mill. We'll be following up on that fire — believed to have started with a lightning strike during the thunderstorm — later on Wednesday.
