Good Night Irene
and thankful to say that. Hurricane Irene came and is almost gone with minimal effect. A large limb across the driveway, lots of twigs and branches and leaves swirling about, saw and drove through some flooding, but again minimal. Every so often strong wind gusts are still coming through and I expect some more fallen limbs at the very least but the predictions are good ... sun for tomorrow. Actually, the sun popped out for a little bit this afternoon and for the most part dried up the roads. A bit more then an hour north of New York City, not too far from the Hudson River, we weren't sure what was in store, at least by what we were being told. Last night the grocery shelves were bare as were the streets. It was good that people paid attention, made their purchases and retreated to their homes.
Many were not as fortunate as we were. My heart goes out to them, I will keep them in prayer.
It takes a day like today to realize what we have and what really matters. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, take care, be safe.
