Irene Who?

We cleaned up the yard, battened things up pretty tight based on the forecasts, bottled up a store of RO drinking water (tank only holds 3 gallons), and settled in for the storm, but so far it has been a disappointment. Some wind, but not much more than you’d expect from a good thunderstorm, and some rain, but I’d estimate less than 2″ in total – the river came up nicely, but isn’t even close to slopping over onto the landing. The power went out for about five mins, then popped right back on. It’s supposed to blow westerly pretty hard toward the end of things, so maybe that will do some more damage. It’s just as well really; we’ve got plenty to do without repairing storm damage…
