This weekend while Hurricane Irene was tearing up the eastern side of our state (and proceeding to plow into our neighbors to the north), we were fortunate to only see some stiff breezes and a few scattered showers. The temperatures were cooler, however, so we decided to take advantage of the cloudy, windy afternoon and go for a walk in a nearby park.
We did see quite a bit of debris from the trees laying on the ground which excited the kids to find green acorns and gum balls. And a few yellow leaves scattered around gave a small hint to the ending of the summer and the cooler weather that will be here soon.
I hope everyone made it through the storm with relatively little damage!
