All is well in the chateau. There are no leaks or floods, no tree branches or fallen trees I can see from my vantage point. We never lost power. Oh man do I love living in the chateau!
The storm here in DC reminded me of winter rainstorms in San Francisco, lots of wind and rain, no lightning or thunder. I kept thinking about how Irene brought the Atlantic Ocean to us, all the way from the west coast of Africa. That thought made me curious - if hurricanes pick up sea water, then why isn't the rain from those storms salt water? As you can see, I was not fearing for my life as the storm raged outside.
My experience was gentle, my heart and prayers go out to those in the path of the storm. I am very lucky.
