Well New Hampshire might take it in the pooper when it comes to snow but Massachusetts takes it in the pooper when it comes to hurricanes. As far as I am concerned Hurricane Irene was a big "whatever". Judging from the pictures that are popping up on Facebook though, Massachusetts had a good show. The most we had was some pretty hard rain and a few strong gusts of wind...Oh and a basement full of water but what else is new?. I don't think I have EVER seen my basement dry...well except when we first looked at the house...figures. I was so disappointed that we loaded the kids in the truck and went LOOKING for trouble. Just to find absolutely nothing. Not even a tree down.
All Irene had to offer us here in Wilton was a wet basement, a new in-ground swimming pool, and a catalpa branch next to the swing set. So I guess I can empty my tub and call it a night. So here you have it. The forecast for this evening.
Hurricane update-Wilton New Hampshire 6:13 pm EST- rain continues with sustained winds of 8-10 mph. Gusts as high as 14 mph, driveway strewn with leaves and twigs. No signs of FEMA or the National Guard in NH to help with the clean up. Barack Obama does not care about white people.
