It's a little after 6am right now, and I've been wide awake since 4:00.
This is what I get for taking a nap on Sunday afternoon. Which I needed after Saturday night.
Thankfully, the worst of the hurricane for us was a power outage, no damage to the house. But the wind was loud enough that I kept waking up all night.
My biggest concern was our dog, Elvis, who spends most storms hiding under the bed, barking his poor little head off:
However, it seems that spending the better part of Saturday afternoon and evening playing with a couple of other pups, along with a dose or two of Richard's Organics Pet Calm makes for a very relaxed Elvis. He barked only once in the middle of the night, and didn't even spend any time under the bed!
And despite the horrendous weather, I actually had quite an enjoyable weekend. We spent a lot of time hanging out with friends and family, drinking beer, playing board games, and laughing at the antics of our ridiculous dogs.
I hope all you East Coast folks were as lucky as we were with your Hurricane Irene experience! How did you spend this stormy weekend?
