Hurricane Irene (or rather the tropical storm that came after) has turned a lot of lives upside down. Our house is fine and we never lost power, but others nearby were not so lucky. My thoughts go out to those more inconvenienced and harmed than us.
My only major inconvenience is that the major road to the next town over is flooded. It makes getting around tedious, especially with everyone else trying to take that one road now. Yesterday I got out to see the flooding and took some pictures. Absolutely crazy to see such drastic river levels in my little corner of the world.
All this extreme weather called for some sauteed vegetables. Naturally.
