This past Saturday, we had a visit from Hurricane Irene. Fortunately, it was not as bad a expected, but the high winds and rain caused some flooding, minor property damage, extended power outages, and downed a number of trees in our area.
Our neighborhood made it through unscathed and the power outage time was minimal. The only visible evidence that the hurricane had occurred was a number of fallen tree branches and a backyard that turned into “Camp Swampy.”
In one week’s time, we had an earthquake and a hurricane here. What’s next?
