The Day After

All day yesterday there was coverage tracking Hurricane Irene. We have an older TV with a digital box so we pulled the news up on that one and watched whatever else on the flat.


The storm took 18 lives as she traveled the east coast. One of those deaths was in Newport News (about 45 minutes from here) when a tree fell on an apartment building and an 11 year old boy was killed.


Irene had weakened by the time the eye reached our area. We lost power only momentarily a couple of times. I’m glad that the damage is not as bad as it could have been and it is so unfortunate for the loss of lives.


Now it’s time to get things back in order.


Hey!…the kids are back!!
