Wrath of Irene near My Cottage

I haven't done too much today due to my busy day yesterday. This is a photo I took yesterday 11 properties away from me when I tried to check on my listing on the other side of this stream over the road. I couldn't get there from the other side either because there was a telephone pole over the road. Those poor people lost power in the wee small hours Sunday morning and it has not been restored yet and the road is still impassable. I can see the driveway on the other side of the river and it's high and dry which is encouraging to me. Here are a few more photos in a Web Album I uploaded. Now do you see why I feel so fortunate? Thanks for all of your comments and well wishes. I shall answer them in time.

I'm glad to hear you made it through the storm largely unscathed Rosemary. You were in my thoughts and prayers yesterday.
I also fared much better than many of my neighbors and considering we had a number of deaths in this area from flooding, I feel very fortunate.
Take care...

So happy to hear you are okay. I have been out of town, but didn't stop thinking of everyone in the eye of the storm. Hugs! Bonnie

Rosemary,
I'm so happy to hear you were okay with Irene and her weather problems. Hope your client gets her power back soon.

I'm glad you're all right in your cottage. How is Webster holding up?

We got our power back yesterday but this morning (Tuesday) there are still more than 200,000 households without electricity in Rhode Island.

Take care,

Maria

You must be relieved. How's Webster? Was The Pig still with you?
