Waiting for Irene
We await Irene. The weather today is deceptively calm. I guess you could really say this is "the calm before the storm."
I took this video a few hours ago to show what my lovely impatiens look like. This flowers will be no more after Irene arrives.
I just heard on the news that Mayor Bloomberg ordered a mandatory evacuation of all lower areas of New York City. Delaware governor Markel has ordered mandatory evacuation of all areas of coastal Delaware. Guess what folks? That's where we live. We're staying here. Bill says if it gets too bad we can always get in our car for protection.
Bill and I dragged the generator from our shed, down through our grass to the garage. Bill revved it up. It's working. We'll have enough backup power to keep our refrigerators and freezers going. That's all we need. It would be nice if we don't lose power but I fully expect to lose power.
I'll keep blogging until we lose power.
