Irene aftermath

Irene dumped about 6 inches of rain here and then it only took a little wind to knock out power. Last Monday the logging truck was clearing the roadway of trees that had fallen across the power lines blocking the road. Further along the road there is still water across it. The Shohola Creek came up higher than I can recall it ever being and made our road impassable for a few hours. Our power was restored in about three days, but many were not so lucky.

This rainy summer has given us loads of tomatoes. There are many, many more ripening out in the garden.
