Batten Down the Hatches!
The earthquake was unsettling enough but what really strikes horror into us Northerners are nor'easter's. Only this time what's projected is a full out hurricane (Irene) instead and we're right in its possible path. If things become quiet around here it could mean our safe place was slammed by Irene. Hopefully everything will be OK and everyone on the Eastern seaboard will be safe and have a home to go back to. It's so deceptively calm and sunny at the moment.
PS Irene seems to have left now! The amount of flooding was unreal and huge trees fell all over... clean up has to begin but thankfully everyone seems safe here. See you next week, given the power holds out. Please be safe everyone on the East Coast.
