Goodnight, Irene!

Thanks to all who wrote asking if we weathered Hurricane Irene here in Raleigh, North Carolina. We’re all high and dry here, after a weekend of heavy rain and high winds, but little actual damage. We’re much more fortunate that so many others who are dealing with flooding and power outages in other areas. Having lived through the aftermath of Hurricane Fran several years ago (which really tore up our lovely town), my hearts out to all those who didn’t fare as well as we did.
