Irene appears to be down to a Cat-1 and might be turning a hair eastward, which takes us out of the worst of it. Still, the storm has yet to actually hit us, so it's anybody's guess as to how bad it'll be. We have food and water, though, and both my propane grill, a small propane 2-burner indoor stove, and a hibachi, so we're good there. Also, a charged cordless TV, a battery radio, and a hand-crank radio, both cellphones are charged, candles, etc. I'm not concerned, just gotta wait it through.
More details when I can be sure the power will stay on.
