Big Storm Coming

It's getting windy, hurricane Irene approaching, probably going to lose power for a few days or a few weeks.

Thanks for the thought!

The storm pretty much fizzled out before it got here. Some trees down. Lights flickered a bit. Lots of towns in NH experienced flooding. Big disappointment, in a way, but really, we lucked out.

That's good news.  O0 You didn't really want to feel the full thing, going by what I've seen on TV.. :o 

Not sure how many of you guys are that side of the pond.  What about Brad, hope he's ok. Haven't seen him about much the last couple of days.

I'm all the way across on the other side of the US in Utah. No floods here. :) Did have some pretty good rain last night. Our only worry here is when we have an earth quake. Our state sits right on top of a big fault line, so it's only a matter of time before we have an earth quake.

Good to hear you guys are ok. Sounds like the Storm could have been much worse than it was.

There was a lot of rain and very high winds along with some flooding, downed trees/power lines, etc. but nothing serious.

No, I am glad it fizzled, but after a few days of watching the news and being told stuff like 'biggest storm in our lifetime' and 115 MPH winds' it was, shall we say, anticlimactic?

Do you live in FL around there?

Yeah, there were talking about that on the news. I knew some of the most coastal area might get hit pretty good but not further inland like they were saying.

No I live in NH, around here. And sorry, didn't mean to edit your post, hit the wrong button and didn't realize until I posted.
