Our Hurricane Irene Damage

Well we made it through Irene relatively unscathed, although many of our other town residents that are not as highly elevated as us didn’t fare nearly as well. There is a fair amount of flooding in our town. As to be expected, we have a few downed trees in the yard, but nothing to the … Continue reading »

Tracking Hurricane Irene

  In between preparing for Hurricane Irene, I’ve been doing a lot of tracking using http://crisislanding.appspot.com/. Over the last 24 hours we’ve been in and out of the direct track a few times.

Evil Ceiling Stain

We’re spending a few days at the Lake George Escapes campground and we’ve had some pockets of really heavy, and at times, torrential rains.

Not sure if this means Naughty or Nice List

Santa Claus stopped by our campsite today while I was on the roof checking out a leak that showed up in yesterdays torrential rains. He pulled up to the site in his golf cart and asked me if I was washing the roof. I wasn’t, as I know that will definitely get me on the … Continue reading »
