For us life returned to normal.  Work (which also wasn't damaged), commute (slightly harder because of some closed exits), evenings (TV), all back to 'regular schedule'.
For a lot of people it is still not back to normal.  Floods - the rivers are cresting NOW - closed roads because of flooding or damage, no electricity, no, we're still not all  the way back.  Just some lucky 'us'.

The walk around the pond is interrupted by a taped off area, some trees are ready to fall, and need to be taken down.  Not safe.  Some dark areas there as well.  And lucky, lucky me that that is the only inconvenience!

We had planned to go to Windham, NY for the weekend.  I still don't know if we will, since there was a terrible flood in Windham.  The house we want to stay at is not affected at all, it's just will we be able to get there?  No idea yet, we'll find out!

  1. Wie schön, dass ihr fast nicht vom "Irene" getroffen wurdet.
    Ok, ein paar Bäume die gefällt werden müssen, da sollte man schon vorsichtig sein.
    Aber die Flut, die hat vieles noch nach dem Sturm vernichtet und viel schlimmer gemacht.
    Sooo viele haben noch keinen Strom, ganz zu schweigen von Trinkwasser....
    Gut, dass es euch gut geht.
    Liebe Grüße und ein gutes Wochenende ♥
