Irene has come and gone

[OT from cottage renovations]

A couple of big tree limbs came down across Grove Road (one across from the ballfield, the other near 7th Avenue) but other than that things are OK, we've even had reasonably continuous electrical service. 

I couldn't sleep anyway and went out for a walk in the height of it - pretty spectacular with trees moving all around in the gusts.  Figured it wasn't any less safe than staying here, considering prior experience.  One thing I found interesting was how the rain was steady but didn't ever come down in absolute torrents as I would have expected.  What it lacked in volume it certainly made up for in velocity.
