It is now one hour into the time when we are supposed to feel the presence of Little Miss Irene. What we experience thus far is lots of water, lots of rain,. It has been raining steady for at least five hours now. Every once in awhile a big gust of wind goes by, but I think wind storms are not going to necessarily be our problem. Our problem is WATER! Everything already looks pretty waterlogged.
Thus far, our house is both high and dry. We are up on some cliffs, high above the Hudson River. Here is what it looks like out our window.
From our attic window, the skyline looks like this with LOTS OF RAIN, LOW VISIBILITY..
Our deck is truly wet now, and the flowers are bowing from the weight of the rain.
That's all for now.
