Hurricane Irene
Hurricane Irene turned out to be rather anti-climactic here. Lots of rain but nowhere near as scary as the violent storm we had on Thursday (that felled that big tree so close to the house).

It turned out to be a quiet day doing quiet things watching the steady (almost mist-like at times)rain fall. There was lots of flash flooding in the area apparently and I have friends that lost power and had trees fall on their houses but it was a pretty uneventful day for my family. Now it's eerily still and party sunny outside although I guess we are in for some more winds this afternoon.

My head is very, very unhappy (it's going to be one of those days *sigh*) but our "luck" seems to have held. I’m really ready to be natural disaster free for a while now...

Good to get an update - been worrying about my Virginia and area friends rather.

Yeah, I feel like VA is trying to kil us this month!

No kidding! First they send us an earthquake, and then they send us a tropical storm. What would have been Irene's eye, had she made it up here still a hurricane -- which she almost did -- passed within a few blocks of me.

I heard the media really exaggerated about Irene; glad to hear it wasn't as bad as we were led to believe and that you are safe! :)

Good to hear Irene was kind to you. She was a lot more forcefull around here. Tons of trees down, lots of people still without power and numerous homes and businesses damaged. A big tree fell at my parents' house, luckily not right on the house but a huge limb plunged through the roof and into the master bedroom. Thankfully they were at that house at the time, but we have a lot of water damage, dry wall repair and roof replacement in our future. My office just got power back this morning around 11, but I don't expect to get power at home until Friday or Saturday. Fun fun.
