The Day After “Irene”

We were really lucky, being just past the edge of the hurricane path – the counties east of us (Dauphin, Lebanon, and York) all got hit harden than us, with much more rain, more trees down and more wind damage.  We lost power during the night and it was not restored until mid afternoon today (Sunday) – but relatively speaking, that was nothing. Just hoping the states north of us don’t get hit too hard.

Beatiful afternoon the day after the Storm

Incredibly enough, Sunday afternoon turned out to be a gorgeous late summer day, warm and sunny, with just a bit of a breeze.  We worked in the grapes, pulling weeds in the last row – this gave us 5 loads of weeds in the back of the fourwheeler – nice addition to the compost, and a great workout.  But the grapes looked happy!
