Good Morning Folks
Some of you are just beginning to experience what we had yesterday. Amazingly Irene was not as bad as they had predicted, BUT we were glad to have taken the precautions we did and hope you have taken precautions also. As the day went on we had power flickers, but never lost it or the internet.
Apparently we lost power briefly over night because the most serious condition this morning was that our coffee was not ready when I got up. I had to actually go down and turn the coffee on MANUALLY.
We have some branches down but no trees and no flooding that we can see since we haven’t gone out yet and will wait for the rain to stop. At last look we had 6 inches of rain and it was still coming down. Pictures will follow this afternoon when the sun comes out.
We did hear that Irene made land fall in Atlantic City and found all of the casinos closed.Then she started inland, BUT was mugged 16 times before she got more that 5 blocks from the boardwalk. (Jersey Joke)
Our best suggestion is for everyone in Irene’s path to just hunker down in a safe place and ride Irene out…
We will let you know more from Onley later today.
