That was some tropical storm. I know, it wasn't a hurricane when it got here, but Irene still managed to wreak havoc. From flooding to downed trees and power lines, this storm had a punch of its own regardless of the down grade it received once it arrived in our area. There were a few nasty wind gusts that had me holding my breath until they passed!
How did you fare? We lost power for a while, a lot of branches, twigs and debris were thrown around our yard, and there is a huge tree limb in the back yard that is hanging by a thread. That will fall eventually, but I don't want to be near it when it does!
All in all, we survived the mayhem, others weren't so lucky. In fact right down the street, an enormous tree fell onto a house. That's how powerful the wind is, it can uproot a tree in seconds and change your life. That was only from tropical storm force winds, just imagine what hurricane strength could do. All I can say is, let's hope all the rest of those tropical depressions that form in the Atlantic this hurricane season stay well away from us! See you later, Irene, we've had just about enough of you!
