goodbye Irene goodbye...

it came in like this
clouds and gusts of wind

it did this
 down south right outside the house we stay in
that's the pier I took so many photos of last year
and will again this year
It was bad in North Carolina and on the coast of Virginia
five people were killed yesterday
the total today is eleven
so I won't make jokes about this storm
I just feel like we spent the whole day waiting for something to happen
and that made it frustrating
the forecasters and weathermen on TV get dramatic and over excited
and that's exhausting when all you want to know is where is the storm
what's it doing and is it coming to my house

(two above photos from the net)

in our case the answer was

look we had a branch fall down

and some leaves  too

look at the pretty "moss" growing way up there in the trees!!!

and a couple of acorns got knocked down too

I really don't want to talk about it
I don't care about tidal surges anymore
or which way the figgin wind is blowing from
or if the radar shows it better or worse than pictures
don't care what stupid hat the stupid reporter is wearing while they get blown across the beach
or hit by flying debris standing in the intersection of two roads right beside a very full dumpster
if I never hear the name
it will be too soon
if your name is Irene don't come near me!!!!!!!


I know they had to clear the coast and get everyone out of harms way
of course they did
I don't have a problem with that
and it really doesn't matter if I do or not
it's the constant build up of nothingness
today it's the
well it coulda done this that or the other
it didn't
and that's what we should be grateful for
and yes I
 did switch it off

soooo much hot air
and it wasn't from the

this is what it left behind
heat and humidity
just as it was before it came


thank you all for checking in all day long
I saw them all this morning and it made me smile

So very sad indeed that lives were lost but let's hope that Irene now buggers off and gets lost somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle or summat!!

It's incredable that that hurricane passed you by. I am so happy it did. These are so unpredicable. It's horrible that that storm took lives. I pray for their families. said...
