Made it through the storm!

Well Irene came with lots of rain and wind. We lost a few pieces of siding and have two trees down on the power lines. We will be busy picking up all the twigs, leaves and small limbs for a couple of days and I hope we can get our power back soon. But, that's all the damage we had and I am so thankful!

Others were not so lucky. Lots of trees fell in the area and landed on cars and houses doing much damage. And there were a couple of fatalities due to trees falling. My prayers go out to those families.

To those still in the path of Irene, I pray that God will keep you safe and sound!

Glad you made it through. We have too, I believe -- the worst is hopefully over. We are having basement flooding, but that's no surprise. Hopefully it will be no worse than usual.

Happy that you have only minimal damage...but nevertheless, some damage to deal with. You are safe and that is what is important.

So glad that you are all safe and sound. We are still in the midst of the Hurricane here in New England, but so far, not a lot of damage that we can see. It has been raining buckets since yesterday afternoon and all through the night, with winds howling.

We too have been praying for everyone in Irene's path to be safe through the storm!

Nancy, glad you and yours are okay! Sorry to hear about losing pieces of siding and having trees come down on your power lines. Hopefully they will be taken care of soon and power will be restored.

I'm glad you made it through okay, Nancy. And glad that there was only a little damage for you. Have also said a prayer for those families who lost a loved one.
