I hope everyone made it through the recent hurricane turned tropical storm Irene without any significant damage. My basement flooded (fortunately not too deep) and I had two huge trees come down in my backyard but fortunately no one was hurt and they missed my house. There was a lot of damage and flooding from the incredible amount of rain in my neighborhood and in surrounding towns in New Jersey. The earthquake before that was minor but surprising none the less. Turbulant crazy times. Stay safe.
