Good morning Blogland Neighborhood. It's a BEAUTIFUL morning here in Jim Thorpe, Pa - blue blue skies, low humidity and about 70 degrees ! Hurricane Irene came and went mostly Saturday night with alot of rain, and on and off rain and some wind gusts on Sunday. So, MBIAJ Headquarters really wasn't affected much other than ...
.....some leaves and small branches thrown around the yard, porch and driveway and ...
....loss of power for a day and a half caused by this tree that fell on wires down the street from us. So only minor inconveniences - the worst being the fact that when we don't have power here at headquarters, we also don't have running water or FLUSHING TOILETS (because we are on well and septic here). The MBIAJ Emergency Management Dept always fills the bathtub with water for flushing the toilets when there's a chance the power might go out, but it seems it only works for about 4 or 5 good flushes, then it kind of backs up ..... therefore, during a power outage, the MBIAJ Emergency Management Dept puts a ban on Mr. Moonbeams High Fiber Diet (he's a vegetarian who eats more vegetables, fiber and roughage in one sitting than most people eat in a year .... need we say more?)
Anyhow, we came through Irene unscathed .... so for us Ireney was a Weany ! (but we know for many people she was not and they are dealing with alot of flooding , still no power, and damages. Hopefully all will be fixed and in good shape very soon!)
Be back soon!
