I just want to let everyone know that I survived Irene without any damage to my home. I had lots of limbs, leaves and debris to pick up yesterday, but nothing major. My electricity is still out as of 10:30 a.m. (since 9:00 Saturday night) Monday. The winds subsided around 12:00 a.m. Sunday morning. It was a very long evening! There are so many homes in my area with trees fallen on their roofs, etc. that I certainly can live with the inconvenience of my power being off without complaining.
