Hurricane Irene

Well in the last ten days we have been struck by lightning, had a small earthquake and then last Sunday we were hit by Hurricane Irene! We have been very lucky and come through it all unscathed. In this photo you can see the tail end of the storm clouds passing over the corn fields just along at the end of our road. The guests who were here during the storm were very brave and we had an informal party by candlelight on Sunday night - power was restored later that evening. We're celebrating the return of internet access today by posting this blog! Apologies to anyone who's being trying unsuccessfully to contact us in the last couple of days.

I'm from Michigan and am coming there in October. I was hoping and praying you all were okay. I had a friend come back from the Catskills who was stranded in the midst of the floods and told me of the devastation. It took her 10 hours to get to the Albany airport. I'm so glad you are all okay.

Yes, north of us it was worse. And high up in the Catskills the flash floods were terrible. People are pulling together to help those who have been affected the most, it's good to see. Thanks for thinking of us and praying for us!
