Hurricane Irene...

(Aug 26)

It was a very crazy week for us. Getting settled after vacation, having summer come to an end, school starting! And on top of all that a hurricane threat. We were lucky to have the hurricane change course and miss us completely, but it sure made for an interesting walk to the bus stop.

Looking down one end of the street you see gloomy black clouds:

And down at the other end was clear blue sky:

Side by side comparison:

The weather that day was actually quite nice considering a hurricane potentially was supposed to come wipe our house out. About a half hour after dropping Caleb off it started pouring but that only lasted about 10 minutes.

And it sprinkled a little bit through out the day:

But not much:

I'm so grateful that we are safe and everything turned out fine, but it was a nice reminder to work on our emergency preparedness.
