Hurricane Update

So, things are picking up here. We lost power at 2:30 last night, for a little more than an hour, and again at 8am, for a couple hours. Things seems to have stabilized for now, but no telling when it'll die again (this place seems prone to power outages).

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.
