And starting to feel the winds of hurricane Irene. We are expected to get hit with the end of the storm, by time it actually hits us it is forecasted to be down graded to a tropical storm. We are expecting it to be very windy and rainy all today. The weather reports are saying that the winds are about 30 mph and gusts at around 38 mph right now, they are supposed to get a little stronger over the next 4 - 5 hours and then start slowly dying down after that. Right now it just feels like a nasty, rainy, very windy day.
We are following the warnings and staying in today, we have our candles and flashlights ready if the power goes out. There is not much to do now but to watch the news and wait and see what happens.
I hope you are all staying safe.
