C’mon Irene

I’m very, very, overdue – but in case you were wondering – we survived hurricane Irene…

Hubby & Peanut (blurry) blowing bubbles on the front step as the wind started to pick up

Hubby clearing part of the big branch that fell onto our yard

Peanut emerging from the house – sans pants – to check out Irene’s aftermath

and discovering our broken tree swing =/ …

all in all we could have made out far worse.  Many of our north jersey friends have had major flooding in their homes and some homes have even been condemned.  We found out two days after the hurricane that our home had a gas leak from a faulty hot water heater installation (installed the day before the hurricane).  Readings above 25 are considered a leak and ours read 2000.  Thankfully we had decided to stay at my mom’s when our power went out the day after the hurricane or we would have been lighting candles in our house.  If there was ever a moment to believe in divine intervention – that was it.
