So now its almost 10:00 a.m. and I think the worst is over! I'm feeling pretty confident that what could have been devastating turned out to be not so bad. Perhaps as the storm continues and ultimately ends, we will find out that more damage and destruction has taken place which as of right now, no one knows about. But none-the-less, this wasn't that bad!
Thanks to those of my friends who texted me during the night and early this morning. It gave me a bit of distraction to the monotony of 24/7 TV news coverage. Although it's not over yet, Irene's punch seems to be weakening or possibly moving past us here in the NYC area. Goodbye Irene!
