Drinking the Dregs of a Hurricane

Thanks Irene, happy hurricane season to you too!

Thankfully, it was downgraded to a tropical storm before it got to us and the line of its path shifted west, so the center of the hurricane was in western Massachusetts by the time it got to us. We did see some crazy rain and wind Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon. The Belmont Police Department asked everyone to stay off the roads, so church was cancelled and we were cooped up in the house all day. Around 5pm the wind had died down enough that we decided to go for a walk at Fresh Pond, our favorite place to go running. These first pictures were the worst that we saw, although I don’t know what happened at the coastline. At least we didn’t get as hard as the south.

So there you have it, an earthquake and a hurricane all in one week! We like to keep things exciting around here. In other news, I got accepted at Northeastern University, so I’ll be starting my Master’s in a couple weeks.


These are some man vs wild exhibits from Fresh Pond. The trees grow through the fence and then they get chopped down. But there are still some remains.

    Thanks for the pics – we’ve been wondering how you weathered the hurricane… Looks like you two are living in a beautiful area and are having fun 🙂 Miss you.
