Thank you for the well wishes. The sun is out here and Irene is on her way through NE. I would love to see the sphinx and the pyramids, the upper and lower nile and all the beautiful monuments, tombs etc. It has always been one of my dreams but I probably will never have the money to do so.
That's very bad. I hope one day your dream would come true.

Our power is back. That wasn't so bad. Nothing that 4 games of Jenga, a game of kids monopoly, playing school, eating lunch, playing monkey in the middle, then playing more Jenga could not cure.

My neighbor is bailing his car out with a little plastic kiddie TO GO drink cup. YIKES. We parked our small car 2 streets over and would need to swim to it so I have no clue if our small car is flooded. The big car may also be flooded where it is parked at the far end of our street but we can't get to that one either at the moment.

Power outages appear to be isolated. We're East of you and the whole storm was a dud. My daughter is in Worcester, west of me and she's fine as well. SIL next town over lost power at 10:00 AM. None of us are near the coast so flooding is not an issue.

I just got my power back about a hour ago. Boy was I nervous during the storm. That is the first on I have braved by my self. Never again!! My apartment building is ok but 2 big trees came down across the yard. I took a picture with my phone and we all know that my phone camera is not the greatest nor am I a photographer. So if it is a decent picture I will post it later.

Wow, Patt, so glad you are OK! Such scary stuff.
