Good bye, Irene

North Providence, RI

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.

All you have to do, is come take your coffee over here. I lost about 200 leaves, and about a dozen dry branches....oh and my cat stayed in the shelter all night. Even my tomatoes weathered the storm. Sometime I just love living far from the coast... just sometimes.

Glad your OK Jason.
Just some tidying up and you will be back to normal.
