So as most of you know Hurricane Irene came through the Northeast this past weekend. Saturday morning was spent running around buying batteries, water and non-perishable foods and then Sunday was spent hiding indoors from the wind and rain. Boston didn't get hit too hard BUT a near by tree did fall and narrowly miss our front porch! When it fell it took down every wire in sight and most of our street has been without electricity for a full day now. We put all of our food in a cooler and headed to our friend's house for dinner and to charge our precious iPhones. Once home we put the baby to bed and snuggled up and read books by candle light. All in all not a bad weekend.
