I am in the midst of what's left of Irene. It's still pretty nasty out with fairly high winds and blowing rain/spray. the blowing water could well be from the river or ocean. Here in town my father and I have been safe, snug and dry. We even have electricity. I understand the beaches have been hit hard though. Down the street a tree fell across Main St. Otherwise from my very narrow view this has been an easy ride.
I know that isn't the case for everyone. I feel sorry for those who died in the storm. Though it is pretty easy here, that isn't the case in many places. This storm has been extremely large and destructive over several days and across the Carribean and all up the East Coast. It still isn't finished.
Though I am mostly house-bound today, maybe I can get some pictures later this week.
God's Peace and my Love, Shel
