Hurricane Hype

Except for knocking out the power for almost 24 hour at Casa Spencerblog, Hurricane Irene was a bit of a disappointment in the drama department.

She lived through Mount St. Helen's in Washington State and ever since has been preparing for the worst when it comes earth quakes, hurricanes and blizzards. She likes the drama.

To be safe, she slept downstairs Saturday night with the cat and dogs, so as to avoid being crushed by a tree coming through our bedroom window. I risked it upstairs. And lived to tell the tale.
