Hurricane Irene...Survived another one!

Well  we survived another one!
Hurricane Irene came and went and this was the view from my front porch after she left this morning.
 Some sort of blight attacked our evergreens over the summer, we have to remove the poor dead things now...
 Limbs falling out of our huge oak tree, but she is still standing :)
 My neighbors pretty flower beds are toast and her lawn ornaments were roughed up but no damage.
One of my neighbors fruit trees didn't survive, that was the worst damage visible on my street.
All in all in my neighborhood not too bad, a few small trees down and lots of limbs and branches.
We were without power for about 24 hours and had some minor water damage in our laundry room. Thank God.  Irene slowed a bit and we are about 60 miles inland of Virginia Beach. We were blessed, some of those in the Outer Banks, NC and Sandbridge, Va were not so lucky and had a lot of damage.
I can't count how many hurricanes I have been through in my lifetime and every time we are covered by God's blessings, He takes care of us during every storm. Yesterday was just another example.
