Irene is supposed to have a direct hit on Connecticut sometime tomorrow ( depends on who you listen to when it occurs) We have not worried about the loss of power and the rain ( 6-12 inches) but the loss of more pine trees! Many pine trees line our long driveway ! And there's not much we can do to prepare for them being uprooted!
So we have plenty of gas for the generator, lots of food ( have a gas stove) and jugs of water. We will ride out the storm ok. Here's hoping all my friends will be safe & warm in their homes. too!
