Preparing for Irene
Just got a call from my neighbor Barb. She said that Ocean City, MD turned off their water treatment plant. You know what that means, fill up the bathtubs! I don't want to be stuck not being able to flush the toilet.
The rain has been coming down for about five hours now. I just got up from my afternoon nap (a very nice nap by the way with the rain falling outside). We're expecting the full brunt of Irene in about eight hour or 2 a.m. this morning. I wonder if I'll be able to sleep tonight as well as I did this afternoon.
We have a lot of water outside but I've seen worse during several nor'easters that have blown through here since we moved here in November of 2006. The wind is buffeting the side of the house now. If I told you I wasn't afraid I would be lying. This is NO FUN, believe me. Thank God I haven't heard anything more about a tornado for our area.
