All of my shops are up and running after being closed for a week due to the hurricane.
We were supposed to go to a wedding at the Connecticut shoreline on the Sunday Hurricane Irene was due to hit Connecticut, but the bride and groom postponed it. The bride's name is Irene and the storm's name was Hurricane Irene. The local news got ahold of the story, interviewed the couple, and the spot ended up on CNN and NBC! Too funny!
I lost power for 4 days and once more later in the week. We were lucky; winds were minor. But I feel for the Vermonters. Who would have thought they would get demolished by a hurricane.
