August 28, 2011-Pre-storm clouds from Irene arrived Friday afternoon. We didn't have any major problems. Lights flickered, lost internet and a lot of downed tree limbs and branches. One such branch bounced off the roof and nailed me on the head and shoulder, but being a hard-head and having broad shoulders that branch didn't stand a chance. (Okay, I whimpered a bit and drove my wheelchair into the railing on the ramp.) I am a klutz. Anyway, I hope everyone stays/stayed safe from Irene. (240:365) thank you for all the wonderful comments on my robber fly shot, you folks are the best!
