So, Irene put on quite an impressive show for us in Hamden, CT. She took down a tree that was at least 70 years old. Luckily the house it landed on had minimal damage. She left all sorts of organic debris across my front lawn, and I haven't heard the birds singing in two days.
We are all okay here at home. I still had power throughout the experience, but no cable, phone or Internet service until about 20 minutes ago! I was jonesing people. It wasn't cute. But, it could have been worse.
I hope you all made out okay. And, let's hold on tight to see what else Mother Nature has in store for us this coming winter.
