Hurricane Irene Recap

Here in Somerville we were hit by Hurricane Irene but not as bad as forecasted. Still, we hunkered down Saturday-Sunday and said a prayer our new house wouldn’t blow away or flood (neither happened, relief!). Despite the impending doom, it was really nice to enjoy some uninterrupted time together with John. Here’s a little recap of what we did to pass the time as shut-ins.

Saturday night we kept tabs on the weather, of course…

Made stove-top Smores…

And we watched some pre-season football.

On Sunday we slept in and then woke up to this view from the porch (not too bad):

We made breakfast just as the wind and rain were at their worst…

Reggie hid…

John hung the last of our blinds (Side note: I knew we wouldn’t be leaving the house for two days so I allowed this ridiculous facial hair to stay)…

And finally, as the storm was passing, we watched a movie and all snuggled together on the couch.

No water leakage, roof is ok, and our power never went out. I feel very lucky and happy that our new house was fine through the whole thing.

How did you fare in the storm?
