    Not much happened here in midtown NYC. Lotsa rain and wind. I slept thru most of it and took the pooch for a walk at 8 a.m.

    I'm in Richmond. We got hit pretty hard by the storm last night.

    Today, on the other hand, its a rather hot, dry, sunny day. People are out riding their bikes, skateboarding...having fun. A typical lazy, end-of-summer Sunday.

    You almost wouldn't know a hurricane passed through last night if it weren't for the downed trees and branches that litter the entire city. Their are broken storefront windows and snapped utility poles with something like 75% of the region without power.

    The juxtaposition of the two images (the destruction left in the wake of Irene vs the very mundane, life-as-usual goings-on of the residents) is a bit surreal. It's like a creepy scene from a really weird sci-fi flick.

    I'm up in Vermont & there's massive flooding everywhere. A lot of people were evacuated & we're going to have a long road ahead of us rebuilding. I'm one of the lucky ones. My road is closed, because it's flooded and completely impassable, but my house wasn't touched.
