Well, we survived Irene with only a few fallen tree limbs and several roof shingles splayed across our front yard. Our neighbors had a tree fall on their car and another neighbor had two giant trees miss their house by only a few feet. They said it was like an atomic bomb went off...the noise was deafening. The wind howled all night, but we made the best of it as my neighbors hosted a hurricane party!
Wish I could upload pictures, however I'm on the iPad as power is out here. They said that power won't be restored for several days so we are playing board games, walking the neighborhood and cleaning up the yard. It actually is very pretty outside right now. Unfortunately, we have no water because we are on a well, so no showers for us!
