Tropical Storm Irene

G'morning.  We're still here, watching Tropical Storm Irene outside the windows.  So far, so good.  We had lots of crazy rain during the night, with some good wind gusts.  My husband Bob, aka Weather Guy Bob, just said that it will be a little crazier later on, but nothing like what was originally predicted.

Our oldest daughter is riding it out in southern Connecticut at her boyfriend's house, so I'm very grateful for cell phones.  I don't care how old they are, they're still our kids and we still worry.   They just don't get that until they have kids of their own, though.

We're due to start school tomorrow, but will know later on today if that changes or not.  I'm in complete and total denial about having to go back, so maybe one more day off will help (yeah, right!)  My mom stayed here last night, so we're all hanging out watching the Weather Channel, getting ready to put a ham in the oven for later on.  Not so bad for a Sunday afternoon, provided everyone stays safe. :)  


  1. So, your husband is a weatherman too? My hubby drives me crazy with always telling me the temperature and forecast. All I want to do is look out the window.

  2. It must be a guy thing, although I do admit that Bob's right more often than the official weathermen! He has a real cool app on his phone that allows him to follow the radar, etc.

  3. Glad to hear that all is well.
    Sounds like you were prepared though if needed.
