Hurricane Irene in Weston CT 06883

Hurricane Irene has had quite an impact on our communities here in CT, and especially here in Fairfield County.  There are flooded basements, flooded roads, trees down everywhere, no power, no cable, and thank goodness, no need for heat.

Everywhere we drove today there were trees blocking the roads, and wires hanging across the roads.   Along all of the river banks, there was flooding.
 
I believe this picture taken in Weston CT 06883 is worth a thousand words.

Dagny, it was not a fun day. That picture tells it all. I went out for a bit, but it was scary.

Dagny, I know Ginny has met you, but have not followed you, sorry.   I can fix that!       It will be nice to see Irene out to sea, and not disrupt life for everyone on the Eastern coastline!

Dagny - we have many of the same scenes here in NJ - over flowing rivers, homes half underwater and trees down ever where. You photo tells it all - Irene definitely left her mark on the eastern seaboard! I'll be posting tomorrow some photos of my area. BTW - I +1nd your post!

Similar story over here. LOts of flooding, but fortunately no blackouts and no one we know was harmed or experienced damage. We dodged a bullet.

Dagny - I watched the news and heard how some areas of Weston were hit so hard from Irene.  So many people seem to be experiencing more damage from flooding than anything else.

Dagny,

I clicked the button; thanks for the call to action.  I wonder if this little house stayed on its foundation?

Donna - That picture sure shows the power of water, doesn;t it?

Valerie - I hope we get power and cable today.   There are a lot of clients who have wet basements, with no way to get the water out ...

It's too difficult to get around to go look, Mike - but I will check in a few days!
