OLD LYME — It was an intense night of names and numbers as votes from the day’s election were tallied, checked, balanced, re-checked and then reviewed one last time. There were smiles and tears, and claps and cheers. Breath was held and then expelled. Hugs and high-fives were happening, and finally the dust settled as the results became a reality — until four recounts were later declared. And our photographer, Katherine Thurma, was there to record it all.
