Here we go! I managed to get every one of my to-do's checked off and everything that's battenable (word?) is battened. The only real fun is going to be getting out to the barn to throw some hay at the sheep and goats. They may be a little hungry today.
I think it's inevitable that we will be without power. It takes a lot less than Irene to shut everything down. So I won't be posting again until a) the power is restored, or (more likely) I do it from my office -- if THEY have power tomorrow!
See ya soon!
