Saturday, August 27 – Sunday, August 28

I was sort of half-right about how Hurricane Irene would be a big flop.  It was a tropical storm by the time it got here, in fact even in North Carolina no official measuring stations ever reported hurricane-force winds, and even at its height early Sunday morning it never seemed all that ferocious.  Even so, there were a lot of big trees down in the area, with some parts of Long Island left without power, though this occurred not because of very high winds, but because heavy rains this month had left the ground soft and made it easy for even fairly moderate winds to uproot trees.  Oh, the other consequence is that original plans to work for a few hours on Saturday were canceled, even though the bad weather did not start until much later in the day.  While I liked having the day off, I was less pleased about losing the chance to make some money after a fairly disappointing week.
