Hurricane Irene

 I'm posting this from my neighbors house.....we still don't have internet.(which is better then having no power at all!)

Irene has come and gone. We are fine and had no damage to our home or cars. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but we did get hit pretty hard. At times I honestly thought a few of the windows weren't going to make it! Thank goodness they did! Our power went out early on sunday morning before we were awake but thankfully we were one of the first ones to get it back. A week later, and most of the state is still out of power. We have an amazing ombudsman for our boat who has been feeding all of the families who are still without power(along with letting them do their wash and take showers). I hope that the power comes back on soon and that we don't get hit again anytime soon!(stay away Katia!)

The night before the storm hit, I moved Landon into my room just to be safe. He loves sleeping in there so he didn't mind one bit. 

This was my "storm stash". I had water, flashlights, blankets, towels and all my food in there just in case we needed it.

My neighbors here are amazing! After the storm died down, we went over there for a hot dinner(since power was out). Landon loves my neighbors husband(who he calls Uncle Tommy) so he was out there helping him cook!

I hope everyone is doing well! I hope to have internet back at some point!

Glad you guys are okay!

Hope you get power back soon. We were very lucky and only went without power for 3 days. Dominion Virginia Power was very on the ball!
