Dodging the Wrath of Irene
I arrived back home (and to my studio) just as Irene was arriving in my state. I've weathered a hurricane and several bad Nor'easters before, but never without water trouble. We had french drains put in our basement after we had water the last time several years ago. This storm was a test of our system for sure. I went down to my basement studio and put up anything electric, closed the door and hoped for the best. The waters swirled and raced in the street and at an intersection one house away, 2 feet deep. The next morning all was dry, not so for many of our friends and neighbors. Happy to finally dodge one.
