Many of you know that I know that I live in the northeast–or as I uncharitably refer to it, the frozen north.
As a general rule, we have much worse winter storms than summer storms. This last week, however, has been a bit of an exception. On Thursday, tropical storm Fred roared through in the pre-dawn hours. We received 5 inches of rain in a very brief period of time and there was flash flooding all over my town.
So Hurricane Henri was quite a threat, with its winds and rain.
I just have this to deal with this this time. I got lucky.
This, however, is directly across the street. I have talked to my neighbor. She is fine–other than the fact that she can’t get out of her garage.
So things seem pretty good in the immediate vicinity. I haven’t ventured much farther from my house than this because of the conditions. Tomorrow will tell the larger story. But at least power and cable are still on–the basics.
