Irene gave her best shot but........... wasn't all that bad.  Yes we did have lots of rain...around 4+ inches, & wind but not a strong as they predicted,  of course we lost power but then again when we live we lose power constantly!  Most of the time for no reason.  It went out about 8:00am & came back on around 4:30pm.  It just meant a very lazy day reading every section of the sunday paper & doing every crossword in it.  I even managed to complete the sudoku.......that never happens as the sunday one is the hardest!

 These were taken around ninish.
 See this branch went right through the shed roof...there is about 3 feet of it inside!
 This poor bedraggled bird was one of a few sheltering & getting some food around lunch time!
 This is a "redneck" chandelier!

 This is almost at the end of the worst part...taken around 4:00pm
 This is the Alplaus Kill which is up the street from us.
We took a ride to see how things were in the neighborhood.......lots of trees down but nothing really bad.  We spent about an hour after dinner cleaning up part of the yard but it is still really windy so I'm sure it will be a few days until we get it all done.

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
