Hi everyone. Just wanted to give you an update. It's approximately 7:45am and we are anxiously awaiting for what Irene has in store for us. Right now as I watch CNN, I am concerned about my family and friends in the Philly area where it seems to be doing it's damage, then onto CT where my other son is. We are supposed to get the brunt of it later this afternoon. But if what is happening outside is any indication, we are in for a wild ride. The winds are already very gusty and picking up with heavy down pours. We are quite concerned about flooding, loss of electricity and house damage but have prepared as much as we can and now we wait, which is always the hardest part. For those in Irene's path, stay safe. And those who aren't, please say a prayer for those who are. Will be online as soon as I can.
