Where do I begin? I'm sure many of you spent the latter part of your Saturday evenings in your basements or laundry/panic rooms anxiously awaiting a tornado caused by the passing through Hurricane Irene.
We mostly experienced a lot rain of all shapes and forms here. None of which our dogs cared for despite donning their fancy new rain coats.
I petered out at about 3:30 a.m. fully dressed and in my running shoes in case we had to bolt into the night. We awoke to a pretty cool lightly breezy morning, a few branches down and no more.
