First off, thank you, thank you, thank you to my dear blogging friends who have left concerned comments about me and my husband and good old Hurricane Irene. I can always count on you for support and advice when I need it! Where else would I get solutions to my sewing machine tension problems (works great now!), learn the name of a flower I happened upon, and receive comfort when I'm alone in a hurricane?
So far, Hurricane Irene has been less aggressive than predicted. In fact, she has been downgraded to a tropical storm. This photo shows what it looks like outside now, but we have had some periods of very heavy rain at times. I live up near the north shore of Massachusetts, but I know that things have been worse on the south shore where my sister lives. She has been without power all day.
Meanwhile, now that the winds have subsided a bit, the cats are in full sleep mode on the porch!
Rosie fell asleep on top of two placemats. ( they will need a lint roller treatment! )
And Angus sacked out on a chair, on top of one of our former living room pillows.
I'm grateful that (so far) all we'll have to do is clean up a few leaves and branches when this is over, that my husband will be home tomorrow night, and that better weather is ahead.
I'm keeping in mind all who have had any hardships as a result of this storm, and hope that things get back to normal very soon!
P.S. Since I began this post earlier, I did lose power for an hour and a half, but it could have been so much worse!!
Hope everyone has had a great weekend!
