Well, it's 3 A.M. in the morning and I am waiting for Hurricane Irene. The weather maps show it will pass directly over my town early this morning. So far we are just getting lots of rain. I am not too concerned, I grew in Florida and lived less than a mile from the ocean, I've been in a few hurricanes before, when I was a kid I remember a storm that was centered less than 10 miles from our home, and we got winds up to 110 MPH. It did get very intense for awhile. But Florida can handle storms, the soil is sandy and quickly absorbs water, the trees are mostly palm and pine and flex with the wind. It is much different here, we have all sorts of trees full of leaves. They are saying we could get winds from 45-65 MPH. There will be lots of downed trees and I am sure many folks will lose electric service. Our church has already called service tomorrow, as they are expecting as much as 15 inches rain. Now they are saying only 8.5 inches, still that is a lot of rain for Connecticut. Anyway, anybody else waiting out the storm?
