We really lucked out...compared to other people, mostly in other states...we really did just fine.
We had alot of flooding in our basement and alot of tree limbs to clean up... that's about it.
We never lost power although we were thoroughly prepared to.
My son who works for a tree trimming company has been working 14 hour days since the storm started Saturday. Now it sounds like his crew might be traveling out of state to help out, maybe New York he tells me. I really do worry about him and this massive clean up they tackle all day, plus working around electrical wires. I'd appreciate it if you could keep him in your prayers for me.
I took some photos of our yard but lost them to a broken camera picture card. I put the card in the computer to view them and bam...card broken, just like that. I guess that was my only big loss from Irene.
Here are some of my favorite shots from around Delaware and surrounding areas (all taken from our local newspapers)...
what a great idea!
the one below I found on the web...not sure where this restaurant is located but I'd eat there...they have a great sense of humor...
speaking of signs...
since my computer was off during Irene, and I couldn't get to the workshop out in the garage...I sat and painted some new signs that were just waiting for me to have the time....I had all the time in the world waiting for Irene to leave...
Each of the signs above are available in my etsy shop.
a few of the custom signs recently shipped out..
Happily ever after...at the farm!
Wall planter in aqua!
Lucky is David's cat...he has his own garden!
love how this sign turned out..one of my favorite fonts, Algerian.
I hope all of you that were in Irene's path are making out okay! My family in Mass & RI still don't have power...that would be tough but at least they are all okay.
Added note... is anyone else having trouble leaving comments on blogs? Seems after visiting the first few and commenting blogger doesn't know who I am anymore...try to use the url identity but now that's not even working...is it just me?
