We were lucky with Irene.

I mentioned earlier that the older section of our neighborhood had more trees down, but when I finally went out and about, I noticed A LOT more damage. Even on the next street over (which is still considered the “new” section, though the houses are 1-2 years older than ours)…a bunch of houses had missing siding.

In a drive through our original neighborhood about two miles away, a lot of shingles were ripped off and trees were blown over. Sadly, the gorgeous weeping willow that was at our old house was completely demolished (and I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of it beforehand—which I was going to post about because it was SO big and SO cool looking).

So we were VERY lucky that absolutely NOTHING happened here.
