So the aftermath of hurricane Irene....not really. We never lost power, it blinked three times, but never out long eneough to even reset the clocks. We did lose a small piece of the barn roof...no biggie. However the worst part of the whole storm was Zane! He wouldn't go to sleep! When mr. Sandman finally came, it was very restful. The first time the power blinked, zane jumped out of bed, turned on his flashlight...but not just any flashlight..no way...it was a flashlight that firefighters use in dark, smokey buildings. So it was VERY bright, and he decided to shine it directly in my eyes to wake me up. That was probably the worst of the storm.
I have, however heard many people do not have power. Guess we really lucked out with this one!
