Waiting for Irene

We are as ready as can be for the coming storm. The rv is hunkered down and all closed up, satellite dish stowed, and everything around our house, and on the back deck, that isn’t attached to something has been moved into the garage. We are both getting cleaned up, just in case we lose our power tomorrow. Hopefully we will have done more than we needed and it will turn out to be just a heavy rainstorm, with no aftereffects. But that would definitely be ok. Harry has a lot of family on Long Island, some who live very close to the water, so hopefully everyone there will come through this storm safely, and with their property in good condition. We are definitely keeping them in mind over the coming day and a half.

Some good news also! We sold the car!! Woohoo!! We have a deposit in the bank account, and Harry will be turning in the plates on Monday. Because of the buyer’s job, they won’t actually be picking the car up until next Friday, but soon enough we will be waving goodbye as she heads down the road. It feels weird to think that my car will soon be gone, but exciting too, since it makes me feel that much closer to “getting on the road” time.

  4. Good news on the car! Yay! We're hanging out and watching for Irene. Her outside bands of clouds/rain are starting to show now. Hoping that by the time it gets to you it has downgraded to a trop storm.
