Irene's really something….I've been through these storms, large ones in both Nags Head and Washington, DC and they're tough.
I've been reading about it and there's an expectation that "walls of water" will flow in New York City between skyscrapers. I can't even imagine that, it's like 2012 or some other disaster movie.
My son in Brooklyn is apparently safe with his family and in his home. I emailed him earlier tonight as I read somewhere that cells and landlines are "iffy," but the Internet should not be a problem, even texting.
I can't even imagine and I wish all those touched by this natural disaster to stay safe.
