Waiting. And hoping. That maybe we won’t lose power. That maybe we won’t actually experience a torrential downpour or flooding from the bay. Yesterday was a day spent like a prisoner awaiting sentencing, but today, finally, the storm is upon us today and it doesn’t quite seem so scary. Although this morning was soft and grey, breezy with a faint mist and no signs of life anywhere, by afternoon there was more traffic on the road than there was yesterday, when all was quiet and still, everyone either making their escape already or glued to the television watching Irene’s progress.
