lot of our old neighbourhoods have flooded, lot of friends have lost trees and had flooded basements and garages.

We just got rain and a little wind, lost power for 6 hours, which is better than some friends.

Not to bad....though annoyingly enough this morning, we had to go to where the missus works to put up a sign saying the place will be closed due to Irene :/

Power was out at the hotel for 2 hours.
Tons of trees down on this road
A couple came in to see if we had a room after their car hydroplaned off the interstate.

Joy.

However I dont think the power went out at my house which is only 15 mins away.

No power still, local utility co say it will be back on before sept 4. After going a walk earlier today the damage/flooding is worse than I thought.

I've heard of the expression "the female is deadlier than the male" - pretty much spot on in my, admittedely fairly limited, experience, so I reckon it's no co-incidence that the most destructive of hurricanes are those bearing female names. The last such was Katrina, was it not?

Despite power outages and flash flooding in nearby towns we woke up this morning thankful that we have no flooding, damage and we retained our power throughout.
