Hurricane Irene came through overnight. My family evacuated, as we live 4 blocks from the water. However, our neighborhood seems to have fared well. We hope to return tonight, and I'm curious to see what a Category 1 Hurricane did to my little garden.
Of course, the day we prepped our yard for the storm, we discovered peppers for the first time.
A lot of the surrounding towns, not to mention much of the state and entire eastern seaboard, are experiencing massive flooding. I'm thankful that my family is safe, and it's a nice bonus that I still have a house to go home to.
