Irene Update

Looks like we weathered the storm with minimal damage.  From what we can see, it looks like we have a few shingles on the roof that lifted.  The mostly dead trees are still standing but it looks like one of them lost a few branches.

We had a brief period where the winds were pretty bad, but other than that it wasn't as bad as the media was making it out to be.

Last night our neighbors who are away on vacation called and asked if we would check in on their property and make sure everything was ok.  They were concerned that three of their trees may fall and damage the house.  Unfortunately their tree which lost a huge branch a few weeks ago split in half last night.  At this point the tree will have to be cut down.  I'm sure they're disappointed about it given that it was a nice looking tree.  Bryan snapped a couple pictures and texted them to the neighbors along with the news that everything else is fine.

My parents and my brother are both without power.  The electric company told them they do not have an estimated time for when they anticipate their power being restored.
