Irene made a clean miss of my town, thank goodness. We had two breezy days, some very impressive clouds, and less than an inch of rain. I remain all stocked up on tuna, peanut butter, crackers, and gallons of water, just in case one of her siblings decides to show up later this fall.
Sympathy and solidarity to everyone north of me who wasn't so lucky. The hurricane experience is really no fun at all.
