She is gone

Irene is finally gone. She left a tossed salad in the pool. Lots of broken tree limbs and branches and frayed nerves. For the most part, we just waited her out. Today, the back yard was a mess, the pool was a mess, and long after Irene left, we lost power and had to use the generator. Now that is one noisy thing. But at this moment, the pool is clean, the yard is free of broken tree limbs and momma and daddy are pooped and finally chilling. Power is back on. Phewwwww. Storms are just not fun.

This is Rocky's mama: we are very glad that you are all safe and that the worst of it was tree mess and no power. We had fingers and paws crossed here all weekend hoping that all of our east coast friends stayed safe. I'm just hoping things are pretty much back to normal by the week after Labor Day as we are driving from my sister's home in Cincinnati to the DC area and then up to NYC to pick up a cruise that leaves on 9/11. Rocky get's to stay at his Auntie Laura's along with the Gigi.

OHHHH Rocky, you love the Gigi. Let's just say this was the week from .... hell. Smoke from the swap fires, cicadas... all over...earthquake, tornadoes and hurricane. All in one week. Nuff said.
