Hurricane/Tropical Storm IrenePosted: August 29, 2011
We woke up this morning at about 7:30 with some pretty gusty winds but nothing too substantial and decided to go out to get coffee. Since all seemed pretty calm (aside from the rain) we decided to take a ride down to the ocean. That was a different story! Video below – you might want to turn down the volume though since you can hear the winds and kiddos happily screaming from the ocean spray.
Please note my rain get up and goofy grin.
On the way back home (about a 30 min drive) things had seemingly taken a turn for the worse. The winds were higher, rain steadier and there were more than a few downed trees.
So here we are safe, warm and sound at home praying that the power doesn’t go out.
