Irene - part 1

We spent the day preparing for Irene's arrival. We staked plants in the garden, moved patio furniture, and filled the cars with gas. We also had fun removing a wasp nest from a downspout and re-digging a ditch in the yard to take water away from the house. All this activity was finished off with an impromptu dinner with Mark and Jen, and swapping past flood and huricane stories. As of 11pm we have received only minimal rain and almost no wind. All this is expected to change by tomorrow, so stay tuned.
