This tree fell on my apartment building -- hit the roof then slid off the back of the building without doing any damage.
Still waiting for the weather service to drop the storm warnings here, which means Irene's been harassing us for over 16 hours.
I'm one of the few people I know who didn't lose power, which has me almost giddy. The prospect of up to a week
without a coffee pot was truly terrifying.
I know there's a lot of damage in Providence, but so many streets are blocked by trees and power lines, I haven't ventured out
to see for myself. There's a lot of damage, period. But it could have been much worse. For anyone else on the East Coast, stay safe.
