Hurricane Irene

Suffice to say, my family and I survived Hurricane Irene! It started on Friday with just wind and rain, but early Saturday morning we lost power. Thankfully by about 9 in the morning it turned back on! It was an incredibly long and boring day. The wind and the rain was unbelievable and so so loud.

Then at about 7 o' clock the power went out. It wasn't that bad, but it got really hot. I had a hard time trying to sleep that night, because I like the comfort and the feeling of blankets and comforters, but because it was so hot I couldn't keep them on all the time. At about 9:30 this morning the electricity came back on!

It has been such a beautiful day. So bright and warm and sunny : ) I'm very thankful that we came through it with no trouble at all!

Great Dismal Swamp Fire

The GDS fire has finally hit our neck of the woods and smoke is everywhere! It smells like there are a thousand campfires being lit.
I know that's not a very good picture, but believe me, the whole nieghborhood is covered in smoke.
