This was a pretty crazy week. We’re grateful that the impact of Hurricane Irene was minimal at our house, but the Catskill Mountains where we have a cabin was devastated. We’re headed up there today with supplies for our neighbors- many of whom lost everything. It’s heartbreaking.
So, here was our week since last Friday…
This is Mabel- looking adorable- all ready to head out for some pre-storm shopping on Saturday.
Out to dinner with the grandparents- a Hurricane party of sorts- before everyone went home and hunkered down for the onslaught.
A shot of our side yard during the storm. Our neighbors pool overflowed, and a pond appeared in the low spot. Thankfully we never lost power and our sump pump was able to keep up.
Trapped in the house on Sunday. I blame cabin fever for this Michael Jackson sock with winter hat ensemble.
By Sunday late in the afternoon, it was gray and windy, but otherwise pleasant. We were able to get out of the house and burn off some energy.
Oddly- I didn’t take any other pictures all week. I did take a some videos that I posted here and here. Other than that, it was spent figuring out how to get to work with all the road closures and making sure our cabin in the Catskills was safe.
