Thank you so much to everyone who sent me such nice and supportive comments. I really appreciate each one!
We are survived! While gathering candles and flashlights, I found this one, how funny is that.
We lost power at 2:45 Sunday morning - but awoke to no flooding and little tree damage. We were quite surprised.
A few more limbs came down in the wind after Irene had moved north.
It pays to have sailors in the family! Rich, Andrew and I took a walk Sunday morning during a lull.
This photo was taken 3 blocks (downhill) from our home. The brook is usually 12 feet UNDER that white wooden bridge.
The water has filled the gully, filled the parking lot, filled the parkway, and filled the street - incredible!
This was a drive by shooting of the football field at the high school. Can you say Maroon Lake?
Hooray - Andrew and I played all these games on Sunday.
Andrew won Careers, Sorry, Monopoly and Life. I won Battleship, big deal.
Thank goodness for a gas range. We had a lovely dinner of spaghetti, bread and wine. This is with the flash.
This is how it actually looked.
We are so grateful that it wasn't worse. We know that many people suffered flooding and property damage. When the power returned Monday 6am, we were shocked to see how bad it Irene really was for the East Coast.
Thanks again everyone for your concern and thoughtfulness!
Now, back to quilting.....
