I'll just post a quick note to say that Hurricane Irene hit our area last Saturday, and things have been terrible ever since. I didn't have electric power from Saturday until late Wednesday night. Life has been filled with shortages, worries, fears, problems, etc. But Buckshot is fine, and I and my family are fine. Getting by day by day.
Now that I have my electricity back, I can write a more detailed post later tonight.
Hope you and your loved ones are safe if they were in the path of the hurricane (which was pretty much the entire east coast!!).
