While the storm may not have been as severe as everyone was expecting (or perhaps it was), it was still wonderful amounts of exciting - both in yesterday's preparations and strolling the streets this morning perusing the wreckage left in Irene's wake.

|Boarding up the store windows in the anticipated arrival of Irene.|
|We did lose a tree - not to the uprooting that everyone expected, but from |
actually snapping off at the base!
|The tree took out a streetlight on its way down.|
|Mangled streetlight was beheaded from its post.|
|It managed to take out the fence on its way down as well!|
|Masking tape adorned many of the windows... but the sandbags were a special treat ;)|
|The city still sporting a dramatic skyline.|
|Choppy waters and strong winds still raced along the river into early Sunday Afternoon.|
