"Good Night, Irene"

I think we said that at least 6 nights in a row when we turned in for the night! Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc on the east coast. I know it did major damage to those states right in it's path, but we sure have a lot of local damage here in NE Pennsylvania! Roads have caved in, homes were destroyed by flooding and we had a neighbor who lost his life to a fallen tree.

Our power was out from Sunday morning until late Wednesday evening. Thankfully, we were prepared with extra batteries and water. We do not take Mother Nature lightly after living through several ice storms here in the Poconos.

Today was another beautiful weather day here, made even more so because we have our power back. However, there are still so many fellow Americans that are experiencing the aftermath yet from Hurricane Irene. Please know that all of you are in our hearts and prayers during these trying times.

On a brighter note, here is the link to this week's Sketch Challenge on the CropStop Challenge Blog. Stop by and link your entry for the opportunity to win a $15 Gift Certificate to the CropStop Store!
