Tropical Depression Irene

And now we have Irene.

Living here in the southeastern corner of Virginia, we’re always keeping an eye out for hurricanes, especially after Isabel came through a couple of years ago. Dan, a former meteorologist in the Navy, was pretty shocked at the damage that barely-a-category-1 hurricane inflicted here, so if another comes by, we’re outta here.

Honestly, though, it’s hard to know where to go. My Aunt Ann in South Hill, about two hours due west of here, had it worse than we did, and my friend Jeanne (who recently moved to Colorado – hi, Jeanne!) headed for Charlottesville, but couldn’t even make it. We were fine, but lots of our neighbors had trees on their houses :-O

I still think I prefer hurricanes to tornadoes or earthquakes, though. At least we get some warning.
