What a day! Now the storm is over and the sky is blue. It was a very long day. No serious damage but still damage. Some of the trees that graced the edge of the lake are now in the lake and a huge tree fell and split about 10 feet from the cabin. We had undecorated the gardens and I am glad we did or they would have been decorated with many branches. The porch on the cabin got wet from around the windows as the rain and wind roared. Luckily we did not lose power.
What amazed me was the lack of coverage for our area. Maine was barely mentioned and even the stations in Portland failed to mention that the lakes region was being slammed. We found it difficult to get information.
I hope those of you in Irene's path fared well. And thank you to all of you who sent emails and comments here and on Facebook. I shall try for a more creative post later this week.
Now the cleanup will begin.
