Slow Down Irene

This has been quite a week for many on the east coast. First an earthquake, and now a severe hurricane.

About now, the center of Irene has passed many of my old friends and neighbors in New England. I'm hoping they are all well, even though many will be without power. I know most of them have been through this many times, and will be prepared for a day or two of inconvenience, cooking on the barbeque, or sharing showers with friends. As long as no one is hurt, we will all breath a sigh of relief.My daughter sent this photo from their street in New York state where they have been without power for 8 hours already. There the rain has almost stopped after about 26 hours.

So the next problem will be flooding. Stay safe all! Let me hear from you so I know all is well.

It's no fun to be without power, that's for sure, but at least if everyone is safe from the storm itself, that's good.
