Five days later Hurricane Irrene made an appearance in Richmond, taking down many tree's and taking out power for 75% of Richmond. We luckily only lost power for a grand total of 2 hours on Saturday night. Our power lines are all underground so we rarely loose power. My parents lost power for 4 days and are still without Comcast tv. The hurricane was mostly a wind hurricane producing up to 55 mph winds here. We luckily did not have any tree's fall on the house, but we did have a tree fall in the backyard behind the fence. The kids slept in the den the night of the hurricane because of the strong winds, they thought it was a party! We set up the blow up bed and Clint slept with them. I slept upstairs with the baby in the bed with me. Besides the one downed tree we were pretty fortunate.
Sleepover the night of the hurricane!
