We will name none of our children “Irene”

This was the view from the potholes yesterday. That pink building was a quilter’s studio. I say “was” because it’s gone now. In fact, I think this picture captures it being swept away.

We are thankful for no loss of life. Our home was undamaged, though we were forced to evacuate for the night due to flooding fears — the river ran wild! I’ve never seen anything like it. Lots of hilltown roads closed and impassable. We’ll be learning new routes hither and yon for some time to come.

Hope you all made it through unscathed. Best to you, friends.

  1. Thinking of you! So glad you, your family, and your house came through all fine.

  2. Wow, that’s quite a photo. Glad you and your family made it through OK.

  3. I was thinking of you and your family — my friends in Eastern New York got hit hard. So glad everything is okay.

  4. Thanks, my friends. Slowly, slowly, the town recovers.
