Irene is over. Phew! A lot of lost power, but no lost lives in the immediate DC Metro. Our hearts do go out to the 22 who lost their lives in Irene's path along the coast.
We were fine during the storm, and luckily, did not lose power. I hope power is restored to those who are without very soon.
All PG county kids are out of school due to the power outages. My wish is that they get back to school tomorrow. For people who are out of power still, and may still be out of power tomorrow, it's important to get these public buildings running with juice so people have someplace to go. We stopped at the Whole Foods Silver Spring yesterday (because they had power) and it was packed. Mainly people eating food, and plugged in, using the wireless on their laptops. So, public places with power are crucial.
That's it for me today.
