As I write this, its Sunday evening, the wind is rustling in the trees and it's quiet. Well, the wind is rustling a bit more than usual - today Irene made her way through Boston, but luckily as a tropical storm and not as a hurricane. So lucky because she had lost a lot of steam along the way, and although we saw more rain and wind as we've seen in most of the area's notorious Nor'Easters, it seems most of Massachusetts is doing ok. We know people are without power, and some have had trees come down but it could've been worse. My thoughts go out to those without power and those further south (to read more of what a hurricane can do, go here and here).
