Welcome and Goodbye, Irene!
We didn't fare too badly in Irene. Our power went out at about 9:45 last night and just came back on a few minutes ago (about 6:00 PM). Darn it. I love it when the power goes out. I'm weird like that.
We had two trees down across our driveway, and one came down across our street by our mailbox. Two came down in our neighbor's yard, cutting across our back yard. One came down on another neighbor's deck, which has a funny story associated with it, which I will share with you another time.
For now, though, I wanted to update that all is well here, and share some pics I got this morning.
The first pic is the back yard. You can see the two trees that fell across our fence from the neighbor's yard - but didn't hurt the fence.
The second pic is what's left of the tree that fell across our driveway.
The third is the other part of the above-mentioned tree.
This is the tree that fell across our street. And that's
our poor mailbox.
This is Jerry's trailer with a tree that fell just behind it, missing it.
