Hurricane Irene as of 9:10AM, Saturday night.
Tuesday there was an earthquake...not a terribly traumatic event, but enough to wake everyone up on the East Coast. Five days later we are now all hunkered down in our homes far away from the coast (if you're not, you should be) waiting out Hurricane Irene. It is absolutely pouring our right now and I am a solid 40 miles in land. My parents are here with us, they live two blocks from the beach in Lavallette. We are glued to the Weather Channel hoping that the storm surge isn't too bad and that the winds don't get too strong so that their house remains safe.
More to come tomorrow or Monday. Stay safe everyone!!!
