Goodnight Irene...

So for the second time in a week, there was the threat of natural disaster.

And for the second time, it was el busto.

The worst,  Krissy and I lost power early Sunday morning at about 2AM.  Without the power,  our basement started filling with water.  We got about an inch downstairs before the electric got turned back on.  The only good part about this is that the basement is in the throes of renovation so there isnt anything down there to get wet these days.

We were a little luckier than most.  Both my sisters and their families and my Mom and Dad are out of power as of right now.

The good,  it was a quiet peaceful night and morning.  Krissy and I sat across from each other in the living room and free of internet and tv, had a wonderful quiet morning sitting and reading.  Now that the storm has passed the air has turned cool and you can feel the first twinge of fall in the air.

The other good, the wedding site seems to be OK.  The water rose above the seawall in the Battery, but it had to go up  a few more feet before before it hit the restaurant.  The Weather Channels Jim Cantore has full details....

The Battery on a better day.
So the wedding is about a week away.  Krissy has been watching Bridezillas and Real Housewives of New Jersey all day. 

I'm not sure which she wants to emulate.....
