#17: Re: hurricane IRENE Author: Emmy, Location: ScotlandPosted: Wed Sep 07, 2011 6:51 pm ---- I think this odd weather we are getting is happening all over the world.
Like what Dave said re being hot then cold - its the same here in Scotland one minute the sun is shining and you can sit outside, next minute it pouring rain and very windy and cold
I've had to put the heating on too from time to time. Then later I've had to open the doors and windows because its too warm! Just cant win but for all that, over here we are very fortunate, because so far (fingers crossed )we never have the hurricanes and tornadoes you get in US.

It's going to rain most of this week but partly sunny on the weekend in time for the Tomato Festival, which is good.
One worry is for the farmers. Too bad we can't ship all this rain to the drought areas of the country. There is flooding in many parts of the state, so all is not easy for some folks. We have to wait for a dry-out period.
It is strange that it is happening in a similar fashion where Emmy is, though thousands of miles across the ocean.

Irene brought us wind and rain Saturday & Sunday. We had a few branches break off our trees. There were plenty of trees, utility poles & wires down all over Connecticut. We lost electrical power from 6am Sunday until 6pm Thursday. The lack of power caused me to miss the F1 and INDY races on Sunday.

We felt the cold winds on Sunday and then back to heatwave by Monday. Now it's cold again and everyone's getting sick -including me. Spent the last few days in bed for the most part but it's time to get up and *try* to go to work now.
#21: Re: hurricane IRENE Author: gillaf1, Posted: Fri Sep 09, 2011 3:19 am ---- We got our power back. The municipal officials that have been taking the power companies to task for a perceived slow response have not cleaned any of the trees and brush that they put on peoples' lawns.
#22: Re: hurricane IRENE Author: nuccia, Location: Toronto, Ontario, CanadaPosted: Sat Sep 10, 2011 1:19 pm ---- Clean up is always so slow when something like this happens. It really is sad -
