Hurricane Irene did moderate property damage in my area, but gale force winds and wet ground
conspired to send a number of trees down. Fortunately, few homes were struck, but power and
phone lines as well as cel towers were taken down. We went five days without power, and with
the well pump out, without water as well. We made substantial use of the neighbor's pool. I am
taking the rest of the evening off, but will return to regular posting shortly.
