Irene Update... (UPDATED x 2)

We are alive.  And the Real Author™ of the blog has been a complete pain in the backside. Just to give you a sense of where we are at in this storm, here's a visual (UPDATED At 9:45 PM and 1:45 AM)...






The eye is over eastern North Carolina, and it remains to be seen whether the storm moves due north or continues on a slightly northeastern track.  There are pros and cons to each one. The former means that Maryland (both sides of the Chesapeake Bay) will get a more direct hit than originally thought.  The latter means it may gain some strength over the water before heading up to New York and New England.  For now, the biggest problem with the household is the back drain - it's getting close to filling, and the real brunt of the storm hasn't even arrived yet.  

Stay tuned...
