Lanai’s Diary Monday August 29, 2010 Quakes, Hurricanes and floods OH My!

Well…Hurricane Irene has passed but not without slapping up the East coast.  By the time it started really raining down on us over here in  Northeast Pa, the winds were a bit weakened from the initial 90 MPH winds being reported when it began. This carried on from Saturday night into early Sunday morning.  The major concern for my area was flooding. It caused some roads to shut down, the first day of school was cancelled and we ended up with about 4 inches of water in the basement.  Since flooding has happened in the past, the majority of our belongings were in plastic bin, with the exception of some loose toys, Christmas ornaments, a guitar, an Xbox, 2 TVs, a treadmill , bowflex  and some cardboard boxes that are now sitting out with the trash as fans dry out the basement to prevent mold.  It could have been much worse, so I am thankful and relieved that my friends and family are all good and the sun is now shining again.  Next time, I’ll turn the subpump on…

Lanai's Diary- Hurricane Irene is on her way, let's ride it out together

Sat. August 27- 9:31 pm EST- As I sit here watching my local news and getting constant news push notice updates on my iPhone , Irene is on her way to my area. As if that quake last week wasn't enough...

It is currently raining but the heavy winds have not arrived yet. The storm is riding the coast near Atlantic City at this time; just about 2 hours away from me in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
