More Switch Plates and Preparing for Irene
We are preparing for the worst, but we are hopeful that this will pass us without too many problems. We have workers here trying to level out the grading in our backyard because we've had huge problems with our basement flooding this summer-- it seems like every time it rains hard, the sediment washes into our areaway, rushes under our door and floods. We also have gas for the generator, water, and are filling our bathtubs with water so we can at least flush our toilets (we have a well). We should fare well as we are supposed to just get tropical storm effects (unless, of course, it turns up the Chesapeake Bay).
Our prayers are with all of those who are in the path of this dangerous storm.
