Lucky for us. We actually had quite a terrific Saturday, cozy inside our home, playing Wii, eating lots of treats, playing games, reading, watching the news (it was a constant noise in the background), and resting. All the while, the wind was howling outside, and rain was pelting our home pretty much the entire day. It was worse through the night, but like I said, we were fine, and thankfully, didn't have to eat chicken noodle soup for a week straight. Those who didn't fare as well are still in our thoughts and prayers.
Good riddance Irene, please do not come back anytime soon.
