The sky before the wind and rain of Hurricane Irene.

.

Hurricane Irene went more inland than usual…we got wind and rain, trees down.

Unusual storm…usually the coast gets the brunt of a hurricane’s winds and rain and the

interior escapes.  Lost power for two-ish hours.

Church was easy…next door and there was a lull in the wind and rain.
