We're currently on the hit list for Hurricane Irene, which is due to make landfall in New England sometime tomorrow morning. We're already getting hit with the outer bands of rain and I realized that I did not clean the gutters in the front of the house as I watched them get overwhelmed by the torrent of tropical H2O. :(
I wish the best for the people south of us who will likely get the worst of it, and I'm hoping that we'll weather the storm with no floods, property damage, or extended power outages. Hopefully Irene will be as accommodating as Hurricane Earl was last year.
