i am sometimes glad of where i live - far enough inland for most hurricanes to affect me. irene was one of those "most" - she was big enough to give a beautiful display of clouds all day, and into the evening, but weak enough to produce a little rain and a gorgeous winds - i love the sound of trees dancing. we didnt lose power either. my parents left williamsburg to hunker down in west virginia with my sister and her husband.
unfortunately, no pictures
