We were very fortunate yesterday. All day I kept thinking that it didn't seem very hurricane-like to me.
I've been through Gloria and Irene - they were more intense. It was rainy at times and breezy, with big gusts now and then, which increased in vigor as the day went on.
filled a few thermoses;
and did some handwork on a baby quilt. There are plenty of folks without electricity, but nothing like last year. We are fortunate, indeed.
