Post Irene

We prepared as much as we could with what we had.  Hurricane Irene came and went and left quite a mess behind.  Though it didn’t seem as vicious as everyone had anticipated no one truly knew the damage until we took a look around.  Most people here in Connecticut lost power for minimum of a few hours to several days.  Most importantly no one I know lost their home.  Video from Vermont proved to us how lucky we truly were.  Though it was an inconvenience it was just that… a mere inconvenience.  I thank friends who offered to help when and where they could.  The storm proved to be an occurrence that brought a community together.  We survived and lived to tell about.
