Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irene has come and gone (more or less, if you're THAT far north at this hour); we're finishing up the "response" phase and moving into the "recovery" phase (phraseology borrowed from a Southern governor). Taking chain saws to downed trees, moving limbs and shrubbery pieces, cleaning the yard, setting lawn furniture back outside, getting the grill back in its place. Bright sun, bit of a breeze - but Hey! that's a GOOD thing today, it's warm outside. Just about time for a cold adult beverage (or two) and sunday afternoon beach music on the radio............and all is right with the world again. Until the next storm.
